Early Scottish settlers planted the Blackthorn bush, also known as Sloe, around northern Tasmania to create field boundaries and to bring a sense of home. Fresh sloe berries were handpicked, sent to our distillery and steeped in our Melbourne Dry Gin for five months, before lightly sweetening and releasing at 37% ABV.
Blackthorn 2019 has all the characteristics that led 2018’s release to sell out within a matter of days.
Low sugar, big flavour, high ABV. This is how sloe gin should taste.
