6 O'Clock is the rare instance in the ginscape of a company that began as a sloe gin producer, then began marketing a London Dry on its own.

To make this version, locally grown sloe berries (which are like tiny plums that grow in the late summer/early autumn) are left to steep in the company's London Dry for at least 6 months, with a high "sloe to gin" ratio.

    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

"There's a pleasant amount of tartness and fresh berry flavor. A swath of tannic earthiness akin to a wine enters the midpalate, though not much sweetness in the finish, which has some evergreen notes. This version may please those looking for a less sweet - less liqueur-like - option. The finish is quite clean. It would be good to sip alone with some tonic or added to a Negroni or even a Manhattan to add some depth of flavor to the drink. "
