“Tis the season to be jolly” and what a better way to do that than with this sloe gin drinks.
You’re probably thinking of Gordon’s Sloe gin with its lovely nod to wild sloe berries, it’s the quintessential way to enjoy a festive drink.
However, there’s one tipple that’ll have you dreaming of rich vintage flavours just like those of a good wine, and that’s Sipsmith Sloe gin.
To make this British classic, Sipsmith leave hand-picked sloe berries to rest with their award-winning London Dry Gin for 3-4 months before tasting and declaring the batch ready.
The result is a delicious, sweet and fruity gin bursting with cherry ripeness, with hints of cassis and almond. Reminiscent of the very best Bakewell Tart, it’s perfect for cocktails or charming enough to be sipped on its own.
To taste, cassis comes through with soft cherry hints and a rounded fruitiness while it gives off a velvety mouthfeel and balanced sweetness for the finish.
Mix with tonic over ice & garnish with lemon or lime or enjoy in a wide variety of sloe gin cocktails.
“We thought Sipsmith couldn’t top its British-brewed gin, but this Sloe version is even better.” – Sunday Times Style.
“It’s smooth, it’s rich and it goes down with a festive ease.” – The Independent.
Sounds like the ideal tipple to keep in your flask while out for a walk in the country side. Alternatively enjoying this while watching a Christmas movie could be the ideal winter’s day activity.
