Bramley And Gage - Sloe - Dry in Style 35cl Bottle
35cl Bottle £13.55 In Stock
Description: Our Sloe Gin is made the traditional way by soaking whole hedgerow sloes in gin and sugar.
They make it using 4oz sugar to a 70cl bottle of gin. This gives a drier style Sloe Gin in which one can really taste the fruit, without the sweetness being over-powering. The very thing for the hip flask on a cold winter's day.
Try making a "Sloe Gin Fizz" (proportions: 1 measure Sloe Gin, 1 teaspoonful lemon juice, soda water to taste. Serve in a champagne saucer).
Free from preservatives and colourings.

Review: A bit boring, to be honest. I'm not a tremendous sloe gin fan (I bought the product just to try it), and this one merely confirmed my view: almost sickly sweet, with a thick unappealing consistency. Their damson gin product is far, far superior.
Bramley & Gage are based in that part of Devon known as the South Hams, right on the edge of Dartmoor. They make all their own liqueurs, using only real, fresh fruit as the starting point.
There are no artificial colourings or additives used.
They have won the Supreme Champion Award in this years South West Food and Drink Competition with the Sloe Gin. There were over 900 entries in this year`s event, so they are very proud to have come out as the top product.
