From the distillery:

"Early Scottish settlers planted the Blackthorn bush, also known as Sloe, around northern Tasmania to create field boundaries and to bring a sense of home. Fresh sloe berries were handpicked, sent to our distillery and steeped in our Melbourne Dry Gin for five months, before lightly sweetening and releasing at 37% ABV.

Blackthorn 2019 has all the characteristics that led 2018’s release to sell out within a matter of days. 

Low sugar, big flavour, high ABV. This is how sloe gin should taste."

Tasting notes

Bright grapefruit and berries are evident on the nose, leading to a palate packed full of sloe with a light touch of spice, before moving to herbaceous green juniper notes. There’s a slight floral undertone and straight back to sloe berries. Excellent palate length.


Bright berry flavour and colour that will just pop in a glass! Refreshing, zesty, fresh green notes. Delicious neat or on ice. Or if you are a G&T fan just add a dash of tonic or soda. Also works well in a sloe gin spritz or Charlie Chaplin.
