History

Originally started in Chester by Richard Jones in 1969, supplying winemaking ingredients. In 1989 the business moved to Anglesey, adding liqueur making to its portfolio in their dedicated winery and production facility. The business is run with the support of wife Carol, their daughter Sally-Anne and her husband Matthew Nelson.

Production

We believe Condessa make their own Gin, which is used to infuse with sloeberries and a little sugar to make this dark red Sloe Gin. Presented in a tall cylindrical bottle with a long neck. This product is Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.

Tasting Notes

On the nose are red berry fruit and a hint of almond. On the palate this sweet spirit has red berry, which becomes more sloe like and a little less sweet (dryer). The close is warming with a sweet fruity finish.

This is a pleasant Sloe Gin and is quite sweet (and although we would prefer it dryer) it will suit those who like this level of sugar in a fruit liqueur.

Awards & Accolades

2 Gold Stars, Great Taste Awards, 2007.
