Sloe Gin

First, we distill our award-winning London Dry Gin on our copper stills. Then we leave it to rest on wild sloe berries, picked in the fall. The result is a truly handmade sloe gin that is subtle, complex and bursting with flavor.

Truly handmade, complex & bursting with flavour.

The process for our Sloe Gin production begins in the fall 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 Sloe Gin cocktails are a Sloe Drizzle, a Sloe-groni and in a Hot Mulled Sloe, on a chilly day.

A blend of Sipsmith London Dry Gin and Dartmoor sloe berries, it’s a winner for an intoxicating warming drink this winter.

Metro

The sloe variety (now available in a single year vintage) has attracted a growing cult.

Evening Standard

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.

House and Garden

It’s smooth, it’s rich and it goes down with a festive ease.

The Independent

We thought Sipsmith couldn’t top its British-brewed gin, but this Sloe version is even better.

Sunday Times Style

It’s delicious in champagne and strikes a wonderful wintertime harmony with strong cheeses or chocolate-based desserts.

Sipsmith Jared

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

A fruity, wintry offering from London's hottest distillery.
