3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

The making of fruit gins is a long tradition in the British countryside and Plymouth Gin keeps true to a unique 1883 recipe. Sloe berries are slowly and gently steeped in Plymouth Gin, soft pure Dartmoor water and a small amount of sugar for approximately 4 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 long been enjoyed as a 'winter warmer' in the countryside. Sloe Gin has a rich red colour, which is the result of steeping the finest sloe berries in high strength Plymouth Gin and soft Dartmoor water. The result is a smooth liqueur taste with a beautiful balance between sweet and bitter fruit flavours, and a hint of almonds from the stone of the fruit.

Tasting notes
Colour - Deep Red. Nose - Clear character of mellow sloe berries, fruity with notes of sweet cherry and a slight scent of almonds. Palate - fruity, smooth and full-bodied with a balanced sweetness and dryness. Finish - Long fresh and fruity.

Incredible nose of damson plum, black licorice, pine sap and dried apricot. Wonderful undertones of mint, grapefruit zest and eucalyptus. Remarkable deep with robust flavors reminiscent of the nose with subtle suggestions of baked cherry and molasses. Perfectly balanced finish. Phenomenal.
