Hayman’s Sloe Gin
To make Hayman’s Sloe Gin, Hayman’s follow a long-standing family recipe to make this rich, ruby red liqueur that’s bursting with smooth and intense fruit flavours.
You really do have to taste Sloe Gin to believe it. Theirs has intense plummy aromas, hints of almond nuttiness, and delicious fruity flavours all come together in perfect balance. Leaving you charmed by the complex finish and a delightful warmth that stays with you.
There’s a gentle art to making our Sloe Gin, which is essential in achieving just the right balance of berries and gin. Hayman’s steep sloe berries with Hayman’s Gin carefully for several months before blending with natural sugars. Always by hand, of course.
It’s this refined process that ensures your experience will be one reminiscent of drinking the traditional Sloe Gin that was popular in cocktails and as a winter warmer in the 1800s.
Try neat with a wedge of lime as an aperitif. Or with sparkling wine for something a little more special.
