Previous reviews:

Appearance: (sample bottle vintage: 2015, bottle No. 68) Hazy, crimson red. (Some sediment in bottom of bottle.)
Aroma: Red berry and sloe berry fruit with cracked black pepper and faint grilled almond.
Taste: Brawny cracked black pepper spice and tart sloe berry fruit with faint lavender. Relatively dry compared to some other sloe gins.
Aftertaste: Raspberry, sloe berries, cracked black pepper and faint lavender.
Overall: Some will be attracted by this sloe gin’s unfiltered hazy appearance while others will find it off-putting. The palate is drier, more tart, than many other sloe gins – perhaps a tad to dry and peppery for some. We liked the pronounced sloe berry fruit flavours and subtle lavender notes.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 22/08/2017


(sample bottle vintage C 2017, bottle No. 103/999) Hazy, deep crimson red.


Pungent, cooked sloe berries, sloe berry jam with pronounced menthol and peppery spice.


Somewhat reminiscent of a cough sweet (Cherry Tunes) with strong sloe berry jam flavours accompanied by clove, cardamom and black pepper spice.


Lingering berry and spice.


“Menthol medicated to help you breath more easily.” It’s not but with its pronounced spice, this Sloe Gin is reminiscent of cough sweets.
