More Product Information
Our favourite winter tipple; Sloe Gin, has been given a new lease of life in this festive offering.
The weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful – so let it sloe, let it sloe, let is sloe! Just as we’ve reimagined the popular Christmas song, our Distillers have taken a classic Sipsmith spirit and sprinkled it with added festive cheer. By giving our sloe gin a new lease of life, we’ve created a spirit that’s bursting with berries and notes of sweet stone fruit.
To make our Black Forest Gin, we redistilled some of last year’s vintage of sloe gin – macerating it overnight with cacao nibs, dried raspberries and juniper berries. The result is a delectable drop that instantly transports sippers to a winter wonderland. Add an extra warming element by combining 50ml of Black Forest Gin with a splash of ginger ale in an ice-filled highball glass and garnish with a wedge of orange.
The Nose: Inviting scents of rich plum and bright fruit.
The Palate: Sweet juniper and stone fruits, with a hint of chocolate.
The Finish: Plum pudding and lingering notes of dark chocolate.
