Sloe Gin

First we distilled our award-winning London Dry Gin in our copper still. Then we left it to rest on wild sloe berries, hand-picked in the autumn. The result is a truly handmade sloe gin that is subtle, complex and bursting with flavour.

Tasting notes

The Nose

Gorgeous redcurrant and ripe winter fruits with stone-fruit almond.

The Palate

Cassis comes through with soft cherry hints and a rounded fruitiness.

The Finish

Velvety mouthfeel and balanced sweetness.

Accolades

Praise for our Sloe Gin

A blend of Sipsmith London Dry Gin and Dartmoor sloe berries, it’s a winner for an intoxicating warming drink this winter.

Metro

The sloe variety (now available in a single year vintage) has attracted a growing cult.

Evening Standard

If you like the idea of sloe gin but not the sugary sweetness of most commercial and home-made versions, you will almost certainly like Sipsmith Sloe Gin, which has a convincing vibrant sloe flavour with high-quality dry gin behind it.

House and Garden

It’s smooth, it’s rich and it goes down with a festive ease.

The Independent

We thought Sipsmith couldn’t top its British-brewed gin, but this Sloe version is even better.

Sunday Times Style

It’s delicious in champagne and strikes a wonderful wintertime harmony with strong cheeses or chocolate-based desserts.

Sipsmith Jared

The key to the perfect sloe gin is restraint with sugar and the Sipsmith boys have balanced this beauty to perfection. The berry flavours are splendidly seasonal here. The ideal hihp flask booster on a wintry stroll.
