Chase Oak Aged Sloe and Mulberry Gin is an execellent winter warmer which is also at home in all sorts of cocktails.
Sloe gin is a decidedly British affair, no other countries seem to have embraced it. The sloes for this flavoured gin are harvested from hedgerows in and around Herefordshire where the Chase Distillery itself is located. The sloe berries, the fruit of the blackthorn, are macerated in Chase GB Gin. However, Chase Oak Aged Sloe and Mulberry Gin isn’t just your normal Sloe Gin. After the sloes have been macerated in the gin, the sloe gin then has tart, succulent mulberries added and the fruity, flavoured gin is then left to mature for over a year in oak barrels that previously held red wine from the Rhone Valley.
The fruity, tart mulberries and the smokey, red fruit character from the ex red wine cask adds another dimension to this fantastic winter warmer.
