From Chase Distillery, the team behind Chase English Potato Vodka and Williams Elegant Gin, this exquisite gin is new to the market. Much like the Williams Chase GB Extra Dry Gin, Williams Sloe and Mulberry Gin is made from the World’s Best Tasting Vodka, Chase Vodka. As always, inspired by unique and decidedly British flavours, Chase Distillery have been busy marinating Herefordshire hedgerow sloe berries, picked after the first frost last November in a bespoke gin blend.
Incorporating a selection of botanicals designed specifically to augment the rich flavours of the fruit, the sloes were left to marinade for an initial period of eight months.
Chase then source delicious, but rarely seen mulberries, adding the fruit for a final two months before decanting and bottling.
Nose: Deep, rich waves of sloe berry with coy sweet ripples of rosehip, followed by lightly acidic notes of blackcurrant and redcurrant
Palate: The mouthfeel is delightful and sticky, almost medicinal in the cold winter months. Not overly sweet with a clean tartness around the edges. Big sloe berry notes on entry, complicated and lightly fiery on the mid-palate.
Finish: Lightly dried and astringent with an aftertaste of figs, chopped dates, prune and redcurrant jelly. Gloriously warming!
Ideal as a winter warmer, serve at room temperature neat or with ice or warm with a cinnamon stick wrapped inflamed orange zest, or with a slice of fresh orange.
