Rock Rose Gin Sloe Gin

A rich and fruity sloe gin, with a smooth, warming finish.

Our beautiful Autumn Edition Gin, a warm spirit packed with locally grown botanicals, berries and spices, is used as the perfect base for our sloe gin. We collect local elderberries and blaeberries, and use the best sloeberries we can find to make the perfect liqueur. Sweetened with muscovado sugar, the result is a thick, dark sloe gin which is jammy and tart, yet smooth and rich.

Botanicals

  • Sloeberries

    Sloe berries are the fruit of the blackthorn bush, a spiney shrub found in hedgerows. They are in the same family as plums and cherries but are very sharp tasting and quite astringent. When they are distilled they add a complexity with a sweet yet tart taste with earthy undertones.

  • Bilberries

    Blaeberries (bilberries) are often found growing in amongst the heather, indeed they can be found on Dunnet hill! Although very similar in looks to a blueberry they are completely different. Eaten raw, the bilberry is quite acidic, but when distilled they provide a real depth of fruit flavour and contribute nicely to the rich jammy notes found in our sloe gin.

  • Elderberries

    As summer drifts into autumn, elderberries can be found ripening in bunches replacing the elderflowers of summer. They are tiny, purple-black berries with a shiny exterior. Elderberries are famed for their medicinal properties, recognised as being anti-viral and anti-inflammatory they are often used in herbal cold and flu remedies. Although quite bitter if tasted raw (not advised as can cause stomach upsets), when they are distilled they add a complexity with a sweet yet tart taste with earthy undertones.

We are continuing to send out parcels of joy, but please be aware these may take day a day or two longer to arrive with you.  Martin is manning the distillery all on his lonesome and he can only box up so many orders in a day – despite how much Claire prods him!  We are also trying to do our tiny wee bit to help and have provided our local surgeries and carers with free hand sanitiser during the shortages.
