Our sloe and hawthorn gin was inspired by the berries that grow wild on the moorlands surrounding the Hepple distillery. Expertly distilled using Hepple’s high fidelity distilling technique and rested on berries for over six months, this is a rich, spicy, complex spirit: the cocktail-makers choice for all seasons.
Hepple Sloe and Hawthorn Gin is an unusually, full, intense and dry take on the conventional Sloe Gin. Built for bar professionals and cocktail lovers, flavours have been captured more faithfully than normally possible through our pioneering Triple Technique. Including dry notes of hawthorn berries and amplified by supercritically extracted juniper, this is a blast of colour from the Hills of Hepple.
