Sloe Gin Vintages
Each autumn our sloe berries (a hedgerow fruit in the plumb family) are picked and left to rest with our London Dry Gin. Year-on-year the harvests vary due to the ever changing, unpredictable English weather. Much like a good wine, every vintage that we produce has its own wonderfully unique character.
Gorgeous redcurrant and ripe winter fruits with stone-fruit almond.
Cassis comes through with soft cherry hints and a rounded fruitiness.
Velvety mouthfeel and balanced sweetness.
“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.”
“It’s delicious in champagne and strikes a wonderful wintertime harmony with strong cheeses or chocolate-based desserts.”
“We thought Sipsmith couldn’t top its British-brewed gin, but this Sloe version is even better.”
“It’s smooth, it’s rich and it goes down with a festive ease.”
“If you like the idea of sloe gin but not the sugary sweetness of most commercial and home-made versions, you will almost certainly like Sipsmith Sloe Gin, which has a convincing vibrant sloe flavour with high-quality dry gin behind it.”
“The sloe variety (now available in a single year vintage) has attracted a growing cult.”
“A blend of Sipsmith London Dry Gin and Dartmoor sloe berries, it’s a winner for an intoxicating warming drink this winter.”
