Sloe gin

Homemade sloe gin

Sloe gin is a red coloured liqueur flavoured with sloe berries, the fruit of the blackthorn, a relative of the plum. Sloe gin has an alcohol content between 15 to 30 percent by volume (30-60 proof).

The traditional way of making sloe gin is to infuse gin with the berries. Sugar is required to ensure that the sloe juices are extracted from the fruit. Almond flavouring may be added.

Most commercial sloe gins today are made by flavouring the less expensive neutral grain spirits and produce a fruit cordial effect.
