Sloe gin is a classic British liqueur made with sloe berries. These fruits grow on hedgerows all over the country but aren’t commonly eaten due to their bitter taste. Once infused with gin and a good portion of sugar, however, sloe berries release rich autumnal stone fruit flavours that make for a delightfully warming tipple.From some of the world’s most celebrated gin makers such as Gordon’s, Sipsmith, and Whitley Neill, find your favourite today.
Sloe gin is technically classified as a liqueur rather than a flavoured gin and typically comes with a lower alcohol volume than its sister spirit. Equal parts sweet and tart, it can be drunk over ice, with lemonade, or paired with soda water, lemon juice, and sugar syrup to create an iconic Sloe Gin Fizz.
