Williams Sloe & Mulberry Gin

As we prepare to turn the clocks back this weekend, there is no denying we are heading towards the cooler part of the year. However, do not despair, the first frost on the farm has coincided with the release of our latest vintage of Williams Sloe and Mulberry Gin – an important date for everyone’s diary!

A blend of our Williams GB Gin with Herefordshire sloe berries and mulberries, our twist on this British winter staple has been ageing since January, with the process finishing in our beautiful new bottles last week.

Good things indeed come to those who wait so while the rugby for the home nations has produced little to celebrate, there is light at the end of the tunnel and something new for the hip-flask.

Nose: Deep, rich waves of sloe berry with coy sweet ripples of rosehip, followed by lightly acidic notes of blackcurrant and redcurrant.

Palate: The mouth feel is delightful and sticky, almost medicinal in the cold winter months. Not overly sweet with a clean tartness around the edges. Big sloe berry notes on entry, complicated and lightly fiery on the mid palate.

Finish: Lightly dried and astringent with an aftertaste of figs, chopped dates, prune and redcurrant jelly. Gloriously warming!

Recommended Serve: Ideal as a winter warmer, serve at room temperature with a cinnamon stick wrapped in flamed orange zest, or with a slice of fresh orange.
