Fruity sloe berries infused in award winning Haymans London Dry Gin create this delicious Sloe Gin
Hayman's Sloe Gin
In 1863 when James Burrough, opened a small distillery in Chelsea, London. He experimented with a number of gin recipes, giving them names such as Burrough’s, Olde Chelsey, Beefeater and Black Cat.
It was James who poineered the London Dry gin which is known and loved today (at that time, London's gin of choice was Old Tom). It was this which led to the development of the Beefeater Gin brand.... but it also spurred the Hayman's gin brand. The current Master Distiller of Hayman's (Christopher Hayman) is the great grandson of James Burrough.
For their Sloe Gin Hayman's infuse wild English Sloe berries in their classic London Dry Gin. This process takes between 3 and 4 months depending on the berries. This is then blended with natural sugars to create the perfect sweet Sloe Gin.
The result of this dedication is a gin which is full of plum like aromas, with hints of almond. The flavours follow the aroma, imparting delicious fruity notes. Care is taken so that whilst this is sweet, its not overly so, and the tartness from the sloes balance the sweetness, and still enjoy the base of Hayman's gin.
