Sloe berries are slowly and gently steeped in Plymouth gin, soft pure Dartmoor water and a small amount of sugar for approximately four months. The sugar levels are kept low to allow the full flavour of the berries to shine and allow the dry acidity of the fruit to be an important part of the taste. The result is an entirely natural product with no added flavourings or colourings.
Sloe gin has a rich red colour, which is the result of the steeping process. The result is a smooth liqueur taste with a beautiful balance between sweet and bitter fruit flavours, plus a hint of almonds from the stone of the fruit.
