Quietly and without fuss, nature goes about her business and sometime around October the countryside of West Sussex becomes rich with Sloes
Plump wild sloes hand-picked by us from the hedgerows of West Sussex are the stars in our Limited Edition Sloe Gin.
We pick them the season before bottling, freeze them to split the skins and then let our wonderfully smooth London Dry Gin rest over them for around nine months. The high strength of our gin makes our Limited Edition Sloe Gin beautifully rich and intense. Almond notes from the stones, dryness from the fruit and the wonderful colour from the skins are all complemented by a touch of added sweetness after resting. We do this because each year the fruit can be a little more or a little less sweet than the previous year and we don’t like to guess how it’s going to turn out.Buy our Limited Edition Sloe Gin (50cl)
A year in the making Time
Passion and attention
The waiting is the hard part but we use the time well. Turning the bottles regularly helps tease out the flavours and colours. This attentiveness bonds us to the product and helps us create something special. While you enjoy it, spare a thought for the us suffering at the hands of the blackthorn bush.
