Haymanís Sloe Gin is an exemplary version of this traditional English liqueur, made by infusing sloe berries, the fruit of the Blackthorn, in gin.
The Blackthorn tree is native to Europe and its sloe berries are found in the wild. The berries have been eaten since Roman times and the Victorians use sloe berries as a common dietary flavouring for jellies, jams and preserves. Mead, one of the first drinks known to man, is known to add sloes for flavour.
Sloe Gin has been a popular drink since the 19th century as a digestive and winter warmer. It is commonly used by people who enjoy outdoor pursuits such as hunting, fishing and shooting.
Sloe Gin is sometimes made in the home and Haymanís Sloe Gin is no different, its recipe comes from a long standing family recipe that has previously only been available for private use.
