SLOE GIN

Sloe gin is a red liqueur made with gin and sloe (blackthorn) drupes, which are a small fruit relative of the plum. Sloe gin has an alcohol content between 15 and 30 percent by volume. However, the European Union has established a minimum of 25% ABV for sloe gin to be named as such. The traditional way of making sloe gin is to soak the sloes in gin. Sugar is required to ensure the sloe juice is extracted from the fruit.

The most popular type of Gin Liqueur is Sloe Gin, which is made with a base Gin and Sloe Berries. The European Union decided that for a Sloe Gin to be named as such, that it must be at least 25% ABV.
Sloe Gin is traditionally made by soaking the Sloes in Gin and adding sugar to make sure that all of the sloe juice is extracted from the berry.
The Sloes are traditionally picked after the first frost of Winter, which is usually late October/ early November. However, the modern method is to pick the berries early and then freeze them. After they have been picked, half a jam jar is filled with berries and 4 ounces of sugar (110g) is added for each pint of sloes. The jar is sealed and turned multiple times to mix the berries and the sugar and then stored in a cool, dark place. For the first two weeks, it is turned every day, then each week for at least three months. After this stage is completed, the Gin will have a deep and rich ruby colour to it.
