Sloe Bloom Gin has just been released in time for these cold winter months, expanding the range that includes the Bloom London Dry Gin, Berkeley Square Gin, Opihr Gin and Greenall’s Dry Gin. Bloom Gin was launched back in 2011 by Greenall’s Master Distiller Joanne Moore, which also marked one of the first gins she created for the group. You can read the full review for Bloom Gin HERE.
Bloom Gin is made in a traditional copper pot still at G&J Distillers based in Warrington, Cheshire – a company that has been distilling spirits since 1761. Joanne’s latest creation is made using hand-picked sloe berries which are then macerated in Bloom Gin, producing a very rich ruby colour and full-bodied flavour.
Catch Sloe Bloom whilst you can, as it has been released as a limited edition. It can be bought at Harvey Nichols’ stores and online from around £25.00.
Sloe Bloom Gin has a subtle aroma of almonds and kirsch, blended with the light floral aroma of BLOOM London Dry Gin. Honeysuckle is one of the distinctive elements in Bloom Gin and it’s sweetness can still be felt.
If you like to serve your Sloe gin in a tipple or two rather than just straight up… Try some of Sloe Bloom’s recommended cocktails.
