6 O’clock Gin

Bramley & Gage Six o’clock Gin

This gin offers a wonderfully traditional character and there are fresh citrus and lovely notes of elderflower. It is a powerful gin when tasting in the mouth with great depth of flavour. Super and full floral backing. Fresh yet soothing. Small batch copper stilled it is full flavoured but beautifully balanced. Long and full flavoured finish where the floral notes are strongly evident. Balance, poise and precision; three very important attributes in the mind of engineer and inventor Edward Kain. With meticulous attention to detail he created mechanical works of art, documented in blueprints that are still treasured today.

Bramley & Gage Sloe Gin

This is a traditionally produced Sloe gin, which is made by steeping sloes from the local area in Bramley and Gage gin and sugar. It has a full deep colour and has a smooth and rich almost almond-like and plum flavour, and it is noted to be significantly drier than most other sloe gins, which are considered fairly sweet. This sloe gin is hand made in the traditional way, in small batches, using hand picked, wild, hedgerow sloes. They are use their own Six O'clock gin which uses amongst other ingredients juniper, cardamom and coriander. The intense dry flavour of this traditional classic can only be achieved by using a high sloe to gin ratio, moderate sugar, then patiently and slowly maturing to produce a drink where the fruit is the predominant flavour. A countryside favourite and hip flask filler, Sloe Gin is wonderfully warming drunk neat and widely enjoyed as an essential cocktail ingredient.
