Old English Sloe Gin is made from a base of Old English Gin and sloe berries from our local surroundings, picked in the autumn when they are ripe and before frost and birds get to them. The sloe berries are soaked in the gin for 6 months at our distillery in Kirke Såby and sugar is added before bottling, thus being a liqueur.
About Sloe Gin
Sloe gin is not a gin but a liqueur. Gin is defined by EU laws as a clear spirit at minimum 37,5% ABV and the predominant flavour must be juniper. Sloe Gin is in general at a strength at 30% ABV, the sugar content of around 10%, and the predominant flavour comes from the sloe berries – and the gin, of course.
