Where Men Can Become Better Gentlemen

Addingham
Sloe Gin

Distillery

Addingham Fruit Liqueurs, Addingham, Ilkley, West Yorkshire, England, UK.

Website

Addingham Fruit Liqueurs.

History

This small family run business was started by Fiona Mann at the beginning of 2011, after being introduced to Sloe Gin several years earlier by her now late Father-in-law. Making her own fruit liqueurs at home she was encouraged by friends and family to go commercial after they sampled her kitchen made creations. With a background in customer service and marketing she had been running her own business, Mann Made Events in the local area.

Today Fiona produces a variety of fruit liqueurs and supplies them to local retailers in and around the rural village of Addingham (on the edge of the picturesque Yorkshire Dales) where she lives. The business is slowly but surely developing and a new website was set up at the end of 2013 to support this growth.

Production

All the fruit liqueurs produced by Addingham are infused using natural and locally sourced, picked or foraged ingredients.

The red colored Sloe Gin is presented in a clear cylindrical bottle with rounded shoulders and a white twist cap. The small simple white label has a colored image of sloe berries with black colored stating “Sloe Gin” and “Home Made in Addingham”.

Tasting Notes

We have yet to try this or any of the other fruit liqueurs made by Addingham, so are unable to provide any detailed tasting notes. However, we understand this is big on sloeberry with hints of almond and a burst of juniper from the Gin in the finish – exactly how a Sloe Gin should be – and we look forward to sampling this in the future.

Awards & Accolades

Unknown.

Music

Listen to anything by the SLOES while drinking this Gin…here's our pick "Chasing Tails":
