A traditional English liqueur made by infusing gin with the sloe berries of the Blackthorn tree which grows throughout the British Isles. Hayman’s Sloe Gin is made from a family recipe dating back many generations. Wild English sloe berries are gently steeped for several months with Hayman’s London Dry Gin before blending with just a little natural sugar to create this rich liqueur. Hayman’s adds no additional colors, vanilla, or other flavors. To the taste it is a rich ruby with bittersweet berry flavors and hints of cinnamon, clove and ginger. Drink in classic cocktails, sparkling wine, or with soda in a traditional fizz.
The resurgence of classic bar ingredients has brought sloe gin back into the spotlight. For brunch, add lemon juice and sparkling wine to Hayman’s Sloe Gin in a flute. This effervescent cocktail complements savory dish like Eggs Benedict or bridges its brambly fruit flavors with sweeter dishes like berry-filled pancakes. Coast into happy hour with Hayman’s Sloe Gin, ginger beer and a squeeze of lime over ice. And when guests begin to grow hungry, a Blackthorn is a suitable mid-ABV classic.
