Said to be made using “a traditional Devon farmhouse recipe”, “wild hand-picked sloes are steeped in gin, then after 6 months or so they are extracted and immersed in a still West Country cider. The resulting liqueur is cold-filtered, producing this unique drink”.

“This liqueur can be drunk neat or simply mixed with tonic, soda water or lemonade.” “In winter mull it with a little sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and a slice of apple or pear for a warming winter noggin.”

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/06/2017


Clear, light tawny red.


Baked apple, stewed apple, sloe berries and floral botanicals.


Bittersweet sloe gin, baked apple and light spice. Dry and lacking the high sugar content found in many of its counterparts, so has a comparatively thin mouthfeel.


Dry, sloe gin-like finish.


“Slider” suggests ‘cider’ and indeed notes of sloe gin and baked apple heavily influence this fruit cup. As enjoyable neat as it is with 2 parts lemonade over ice – as recommended by its makers.
