According to tradition, the sloes should be pricked before maceration in order to release the full intensity of their flavour… but the pricking implement has to be made of silver! However, another tradition is simply to use a thorn from the sloe tree.
PLYMOUTH Sloe Gin
Even though sloes grow all over Europe, English sloes remain the most popular. As October approaches, the bushes become laden with fruit and the sloes are picked by hand: a somewhat thorny task! It takes four months to make this liqueur whose colour and flavour are entirely natural. The sloes are left to gently infuse in Plymouth Gin, with some water and sugar; it is this that gives Plymouth Sloe Gin its particular balance.
