Hepple Sloe & Hawthorn Gin
Hepple's sloe and hawthorn gin was inspired by the berries that grow wild on the moorlands surrounding the Hepple distillery. Expertly distilled using Hepple’s high fidelity distilling technique and rested on berries for over six months, this is a rich, spicy, complex spirit: the cocktail-makers choice for all seasons.
On the nose, bitter almond, ripe juniper and stone fruit with the faintest underlying perfume of cocoa. On the palate, a strong presence of juicy plum and cherry with continual almond presence beneath. Succulent with long lingering notes of juniper and sour cherry.
Think: Your childhood Sanza sweet. Bring on the adult version baby!
Hepple Sloe and Hawthorn Gin is an unusually, full, intense and dry take on the conventional Sloe Gin. Built for bar professionals and cocktail lovers. Flavours have been captured more faithfully than normally possible through their pioneering Triple Technique. Including dry notes of hawthorn and amplified by supercritically extracted juniper, this is a blast of color from the Hills of Hepple.
Pour the dark purple ribena coloured gin over ice and watch the color transform into a striking sunset redish/orange as it hit the rocks. Perfect on its own or mixed.
