Warner Edwards - Harrington Sloe GinSpicy & Rich
W.E use their Harrington Dry Gin with 11 botanicals; juniper, coriander seed, angelica root, cinnamon, orange peel, black pepper, lemon peel, cardamom, dried elderflower, ground nutmeg, and one secret, as the base for our Harrington Sloe Gin.
The sloe berries are macerated in the gin for at least one month, before removing the fruit and adding sugar to taste, and spring water to bring the gin to 30% abv.
Waste not want not! Their sloe berries are not discarded once removed from the liquid; they re-distill them to extract the alcohol absorbed, and use the resulting clear, high-proof sloe gin to intensify to sloe flavour.
The finish is a satisfying warmth that makes you feel at one with the world! Try with Prosecco, bitter lemon, Champagne, ginger beer or 50/50 with Port.
