Sloe Crafts.


The Lorbottle West Steads Farm has been in the Farr family for generations and they have produced their own Sloe Gin for nearly as long.

We believe this commercial enterprise was started around 2004 with Helen Farr’s signature item - Sloe Gin – and now has a small range of additional products in their portfolio (including other liqueurs and preserves).


Uses an undisclosed Gin and wild sloes gathered from the farms hedgerows and made to a recipe handed down from Helen Farr’s Grandmother.

The ruby red colored Gin is presented in an unusual shaped bottle – a rectangular base with sloping corners that significantly narrow at the top.


Flavored Gin - Sloe.

Alcohol By Volume (ABV)

25% (50 Proof).

Price Range

$$$$$. Not available in the USA. This is a seasonal item and is available for delivery only within the UK, via the Sloe Crafts website.


Unknown but includes sloeberries.


The name is self explanatory but gives an indication of an artisinal product made with care rather than a speedily made mass-produced spirit, using the key botanical flavoring of sloeberries.

Tasting Notes

Unfortunately we have not tasted this yet, so we are unable to provide any personal review. However, we understand from Sloe Crafts this spirit is fruity and is perhaps more dry than it is sweet.
