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.
