Product Details

The making of fruit gins is a long tradition in the British countryside and Plymouth Gin keeps true to a unique 1883 recipe. In times long, long ago, farmers would end the harvest season gathering berries and nuts from the hedgerows. They then discovered that the fruit of the Hawthorn bush (Sloe Berries) was inedible. They then had an idea to soak the Hawthorn fruit in gin and adding sugar, a very agreeable drink was produced. And through this eureka moment Sloe gin was born.

Sloe berries are slowly and gently steeped in gin, soft pure Dartmoor water and a small amount of sugar for approximately 4 months. There is not a lot of sugar added so that the true flavour for the berries can shine and allow the dry acidity of the fruit to be an important part of the taste. This produces an entirely natural product with no added flavourings or colourings. It is normally drunk as a winter warmer in the countryside.
