The Boatyard Distillery has brought back its limited-edition Sloe Boat Gin by popular demand.
After releasing the sloe gin liqueur as a special edition in 2020, the Northern Ireland distiller has announced that it will become a permanent addition to its spirits range.
To create the gin, Boatyard Distillery steeps wild-harvested sloe berries in gin for six months then sweetens the resulting liquid with sustainably sourced sugar. It claims to cram in more sloe berries than any other sloe gin, with 420g of fruit per bottle.
The Boatyard team says Sloe Boat is a “rich and intense” gin liqueur, with a deep red hue and notes of plums, cassis, almond and juniper.
Boatyard Sloe Boat Gin (29.8% ABV) launches in October through The Whisky Exchange and other specialist retailers the UK, priced £29.50 for a 70cl bottle.
