To make this German sloe gin, real sloe berries are macerated in Elephant London Dry Gin for several months. The brand is inspired by Africa and in fact 15% of all profits go to two African elephant charities. The long maceration and small amount of sugar result in a fruity liqueur that's sweet yet tart and great in cocktails or with tonic.
SloesJuniper berries, baobab, lion's tail, African wormwood, buchu, devils claw, green apple, ginger, mountain pine, orange peel, pimento, cassia bark, elderflower, lavender
Nose: Nutty and sweet, with big waves of fresh sloe.
Palate: Sloe is of course the main attraction here, though this is well seasoned with cooking spice and black pepper.
Finish: Lingering sweetness - not sugary, but fresh with blackberry and more sloe.
Sloe Gin Fizz. Ginger ale/Sicilian lemon tonic garnished with lemon or lime.
