Sloe Gin

Looking for a sloe gin? Look no further as Drinksupermarket.com has a range of sloe gins from names such as Monkey 47, Gordon's and Sipsmith.

Sloe gin is made from ripe sloes, which are traditionally picked after the first frost of winter (late October to early November in the northern hemisphere). Each sloe is pricked, traditionally with a thorn taken from the blackthorn bush on which they grow. An alternative folk tale says that one should not prick the sloes with a metal fork unless it is made of silver. A modern variation is to pick the sloes earlier and freeze them. Once the sloes and sugar have been added to the gin, the mix is left to infuse for three months, traditionally turned by hand daily for two weeks, then weekly until the three month period is up and the fruit has turned the gin a beautiful ruby colour.
