Plymouth Sloe Gin 70cl £24.95
Sloe Gin has a rich red color, which is the result of steeping the finest sloe berries in high strength Plymouth Gin and soft Dartmoor water. The result is a smooth liqueur taste with a beautiful balance between sweet and bitter fruit flavors, and a hint of almonds from the stone of the fruit.
Origins The sloe berry is from the Prunus family and is a hard, small, purple-black fruit of the Blackthorn, which traditionally grows in English hedgerows. Most of the sloes in Plymouth Sloe Gin grow wild in nearby Dartmoor National Park.
The making of fruit gins is a long tradition in the British countryside and Plymouth Gin keeps true to a unique 1883 recipe. The sloe berries are slowly and gently steeped in Plymouth Gin, soft pure Dartmoor water and a small amount of sugar.
The result is an entirely natural product with no added flavorings or colorings. Sloe Gin has long been enjoyed as a winter warmer in the countryside.
