Five years is a lot of rest for a sloe berry, but this limited edition from 6 O’Clock Gin demonstrates that it’s something we should probably me making a habit of. The result is a super-smooth, intensely rich liqueur with a great depth of flavour.

The five-year wait gives the gin plenty of time to seep into the fruit’s stone, giving a distinctive almond hit. That period of sleep also loses all of the sloe’s tartness, resulting in a port-like flavour. As such, it’s one to drink neat!

Key Flavours

Dried Fruit
"This is a decadent treat if ever there was one and probably one whose greatness will ever truly be appreciated by a select few Sloe connoisseurs. The way the fruits have mellowed, oxidised and melded together is quite spectacular."

About this product

The flagship 6 O’Clock Gin is made super smooth, in a custom still that allows for optimum copper contact. Once the gin is ready to go, it’s added to a great vat of fresh plucked sloes and left to rest for a five whole years.

Bramley & Gage, the distillery behind 6 O’Clock Gin, is a family affair, headed up by Edward Kain and his offspring. The distillery got its start in the mid ‘80s, when the farming family found that liqueurs were a great use of surplus fruit.

6 O’Clock Gin has its roots firmly in Bristol and is a real point of pride in the area. Those curious for a nose around should book onto a tour, which offers the full range of gins, as well as a rainbow of liqueurs to try.
