Here comes winter! The sloes that are harvested for this wonderfully aromatic gin are not ripe until September at the earliest - but usually much later. Immediately after the harvest, it goes to the gin bath, where the fruits gradually give off their taste to the alcohol. The kernels also play a role, giving the gin in spé its soft, Mediterranean almond aroma. Towards the end of this process, the gin still receives exactly the right dose of naturally pure sloe juice and is further refined with warming spices such as cinnamon and ginger. Then it can finally be poured into the bottle as a consummate pleasure. A slight sediment can later form, a visible proof of the naturalness and high quality of our sloe gin.
Nose: The experts at Burgen call this liqueur a "gin interpretation". The nose is spoiled with the warm aromas of later, dark fruits. Hints of almonds awaken associations of Christmas marzipan, cinnamon and ginger are a treat for the soul.
Palate: A little fine resin, a lot of autumn fruit and a dash of freshness from citrus fruits. The Sloe Gin Liqueur is a perfectly balanced pleasure.
Tip: on a bitterly cold day, heat up naturally cloudy apple juice, add 4cl of this winter edition Sloe Gin Liqueur and let this “mulled gin” really warm you up.
