Category: Sloe gin / sloeberry (Pacharán)
Product of: United Kingdom
A sloe gin with an unusually low sugar content and no added colouring.
Sampled on 07/09/2011
Light red with a brown tinge.
Slightly subdued sloe gin nose with good almond notes.
As the label rightly says, this “Sloe gin is paler in colour, stronger and drier in taste”. The medium dry palate is recognisably a sloe gin but without the familiar sweet jammy notes which makes for more a ‘light fruity spirit’ than a ‘liqueur’ drinking experience.
We understand this is a popular hip flask tipple with the hunting fraternity and can see why. Well balanced and very moreish.
