In the UK, foraging the wild berries, steeping them in gin, and making the liqueur has been part of a rural family tradition for centuries. Spirit Works Sloe Gin recipe has been handed down through the Marshall family for generations: they start with their signature gin, macerate it with sloe berries until the delicious fruit flavor and color have fully released in the gin. This vibrantly-hued liqueur features both bright berry and citrus notes, combining ripe sweetness with fresh acidity.
Traditionally, sloe gin is served after a meal by itself as a digestif, but its unique color and flavor also combine wonderfully with a wide variety of spirits. It is delicious when mixed with everything from whiskey to agave spirits, but is also wonderful with sparkling wine and makes an incredible Sloe Gin Fizz.
