Husk Distillers Ink Sloe & Berry Gin

Ink Sloe & Berry Gin is an antipodean take on the classic English sloe gin recipe. The base gin was distilled with some of Ink Gin’s star players – juniper berry, coriander, angelica and liquorice root. The flavour base continues to build with a tart infusion of sloe berries (actually a fruit) and this tartness is balanced by an explosion of sweet red berries. The final ingredient in Ink Sloe and Berry Gin is Australian rosella flowers. Growing wild on the fringes of tropical rainforest of northern Australia, rosellas are a type of hibiscus flower. They have a vibrant colour and a crisp, tart flavour to balance the sweeter botanicals in Sloe & Berry. Sitting at the traditional Sloe Gin strength of 26% alcohol, Ink Sloe & Berry is a refreshing lower strength “Drink Less – Enjoy More” option – perfect for sipping on the rocks.
