  • Sloe Gin & Variants
    A gin liqueur deriving its main flavor from sloe berries. Though called berries, they are actually plums. Variants use different types of plums such as Damson.

Tasting Notes

"The fruit really comes through here with jammy aromas and flavors that have a balanced acidity. Warm textures of vanilla and sweet spices play off the natural tannins of the fruit, with a slight wintergreen flavor coming from the gin. Overall, very balanced and easy to sip, preferably in a spritz or with tonic. "
