Hayman’s Sloe Gin Liqueur
Wonderful fruity notes from the wild-foraged berries combined with our award-winning London Dry Gin.
To create our Sloe Gin we gently infuse wild harvested English Sloe berries in our beautifully balanced London Dry Gin.
The process, another of our Hayman’s long-standing family recipes, takes 3-4 months before the infusion is blended with natural sugars. The result is plummy aromas, hints of almond and frangipane and delicious fruity notes – it’s not too sweet, not too tart and you can still taste our gin!
Traditionally sipped neat or poured over ice, we also enjoy it as a long drink with elderflower tonic. A Hayman’s Sloe Royale is served with sparkling wine and a perfect cocktail for a special occasion.
The very essence of Hayman’s is that we still make our gin today using the same family recipes developed over 150 years ago. Using only the finest botanicals available combined with the two-day gin making process, our botanicals are infused in English wheat spirit for an entire day allowing the full natural flavours to shine through.
The Hayman’s copper pot stills perform an essential role in our gin distilling process – allowing heat to be dispersed evenly and efficiently while stripping out any unwanted flavours and aromas. These stills are at the very heart of what we do – in creating the bright and balanced, smooth flavour of our gins.

For the true taste
While it requires some extra effort, home-squeezed grapefruit will retain the fruit’s natural sweetness without the bitter edge that can dominate shop-bought juice. Use pink grapefruit for a slightly sweeter finish, and white grapefruit for a touch of natural bitterness.
