Truly handmade, complex & bursting with flavour.
The process for our Sloe Gin production begins in the autumn when our sloe berries (a hedgerow fruit in the plum family) are picked and left to rest with our London Dry Gin. Year-on-year, the harvests vary due to the ever changing, unpredictable British weather. Much like a good wine, every vintage that we produce has its own wonderfully unique character, with Sipsmith quality guaranteed.
Think of sloe gin as Britain's national liqueur, as limoncello is to Italy. It's sensationally sippable in a whole host of gin cocktails, and can be added to a number of our London Dry Gin cocktails to add a dose of berry sweetness. Our favourite Sipsmith Sloe Gin cocktails are a Winter G&T, a Sloe-groni and in a Hot Mulled Sloe, on a chilly day.
The key to the perfect sloe gin is restraint with sugar and the Sipsmith boys have balanced this beauty to perfection. The berry flavours are splendidly seasonal here. The ideal hip flask booster on a wintry stroll.Mail on Sunday
