Filliers Dry Gin 28 Sloe Gin 26% 500ml
A sloe gin from the brilliant Belgian distillery, Filliers. Whilst you might see sloe gin as a purely British commodity, like fish & chips or tweed jackets, the talented folks at Filliers certainly know how to whip one up to rival many of the best Britain has to offer.
Rich and jammy with cherries, figs and plums, alongside classic notes of juniper and cinnamon, Filliers Sloe Gin is just the ticket to warm you up on a chilly winter evening, but just as good splashed into a refreshing cocktail.
Nose: Plum jam springs to mind, but so does sweet chutney. There's a savoury edge too, well seasoned bread sauce with clove perhaps. More perfumed given time in the glass.
Palate: Boom! Thick, dark cherry and prune with juniper and cinnamon, where did that come from?
Finish: Mouthcoating, tart and oh so moreish.
