Hayman’s Sloe Gin

Hayman’s Sloe Gin


Hayman’s have been making sloe gin for years. Making it, but keeping it for their nearest and dearest. Now however, Hayman’s have given us entry into the club, bottling up their prized and coveted magenta nectar, and selling it to a thirsty public.

Hayman’s Sloe Gin is a bitter sweet symphony of sweet and fruity sloe berries, and bitter gin. It is a stunning deep red colour, and looks rather regal and terribly British in with its blue and white labels against the back drop of the rouge liquor. The gin is infused with the deep colours and flavours of autumn sloe berries, and the result is a powerful drink that looks pretty in dark pink.

While gin and tonic is a classic refreshing summer tipple, the fruitiness of the sloe gin makes it a more versatile drink. It would be just the ticket on a cold autumn evening, sipping the warming flavours of this autumn fruit by the fireside. Equally, it is a fabulous flavour base in cocktails. Why not try mixing up a stunningly bright and colourful Sloe Royal? A sparkling cocktail that is bound to impress. Or, if you’re one of those people who likes to lace your Pimms with extra gin, why not give the sloe a go? This marriage of two classic British tipples is bound to give your Pimms that certain *je ne sais quoi,* and will get people talking.

A bottle of Hayman’s sloe gin will be belle of your bottle rack, and is a simply delicious drink. Once you’ve had your first sip you’ll understand why Hayman’s have been keeping it so closely guarded for so many years. And you’ll be ever so grateful they’ve decided to share it with you.

Hayman’s Sloe Gin is available at Harvey Nichols wine shop, and online at Bottles are priced at around £19.95.
