Without a fox or a hound in sight you’ll still feel like you made a killing. With a scent like Harris Tweed, plums and almond, and a color thick with deep red and purple tannins, this gin has a warming effect to stave off the worst winter frosts. With a distinctive blue gin dry spice shrouded in a shawl of rich red sloe fruit, this gin strikes the balance between sweet and savory that is perfect for sipping. Brave drinkers will pass this off as their own humble homemade ‘batch’.»The Bitter Truth – Sloe Gin« is a Sloe Gin made from the best ripe sloe berries which are macerated in Blue Gin created by the famous Austrian distiller Hans Reisetbauer. Since it is only flavored with fresh sloe berries, this gin reveals the unique aroma of this wild-growing »little plum«, that is widespread in Southern Germany. »The Bitter Truth – Sloe Gin« is an ingredient in many cocktails and longdrinks, but can also be sipped on its own.
Dry and a just slightly sweet. The very intense sloe/plum aroma that is followed by an unobtrusive almond flavor doesn’t overpower the gin completely. It is still recognizible and completes the fruitiness with spicy flavors.
