Gordon's Sloe Gin: A British Sloe Berry Delight

Gordon's Sloe Gin is a cherished British liqueur, boasting a heritage that stretches back to 1908. This deep ruby-red tipple expertly marries the classic dryness of Gordon's Gin with the sweet and slightly tart notes of wild sloe berries. The result is a complex and flavourful gin that can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or as a base for delicious cocktails.

Aromatic Delights

Pour yourself a measure of Gordon's Sloe Gin and take a moment to appreciate its inviting aroma. You'll be greeted by a wave of juniper, the signature botanical of Gordon's Gin. This is followed by a delightful medley of ripe plum, damson, and blackberries – a clear testament to the infusion of sloe berries. Hints of earthy spice and a touch of citrus peel round out the enticing bouquet, creating a truly well-rounded olfactory experience.

Flavour Profile

The first sip of Gordon's Sloe Gin reveals a delightful balance between sweet and tart. The initial sweetness comes from the ripe sloe berries, offering a burst of juicy plum and damson flavours. This sweetness is beautifully counterpointed by the dry juniper backbone of Gordon's Gin, ensuring the liqueur remains refreshingly balanced. As the flavour develops, subtle hints of earthy spice and citrus peel emerge, adding complexity and depth to the overall profile. The finish is smooth and lingering, leaving behind a pleasant taste of sloe berries and juniper.
