Hayman’s Sloe Gin

From Hayman Distillers

A True English Sloe Gin is defined by its balance. Not too sweet, not too tart and you need to be able to taste the gin! To create theirs they gently steep wild harvested English Sloe berries in our classically balanced English Gin for three to four months following an old family recipe.

The result is a Sloe Gin of exceptional balance in which you will find plummy aromas, hints of almond and frangipane and delicious fruity notes from the wild-foraged berries – all underpinned by a classic English Gin backbone.

Classically enjoyed throughout the festive season or as a warming companion to a brisk winter’s walk, Hayman’s Sloe gin in a true English Sloe Gin also pairs perfectly with sparkling wine to create a refreshing summer serve.
