    £17.50£41.00

    The Parliament Enclosures Act of 1773 was enacted to divide up formerly common land to provide legal property rights for prospective landowners. The hedgerows that were constructed to divide up the land were commonly constructed of Blackthorn, Prunus spinosa, creating  bumper crops of Sloe berries that, although they were tart and astringent by themselves, were soon used by the locals to add to gin.  Simply adding the Sloes made the gin of that time more palatable, and the staple English Autumnal beverage was born.

    At the Fairytale Distillery while we support the traditional way to make Sloe Gin: we obtain the best Sloes, use one of our 2020 World Spirits Award winning gins but do not use sugar!  You still get the award winning gin taste ( a delicate juniper with an oil pungency, orange like, slight mushroom notes, a hint of lavender with a full bodied and long aftertaste) but subtly flavoured with the Sloes. This gives our Highland Gin Number 64 a plum like addition, with a hint of dark chocolate, raisin, creating a harmonious and a slightly sweet almond like finish.

    Fragrance | A light sloe gin version, subtle juniper berry notes in the basis, delicately sloe-juicy, rather fresh and cherry-like, delicate roast aromas, reminiscent of stewed plums, vanilla, orange peels, cinnamon, dried fruits, some cinnamon, delicately rooty, black tea, a touch of lovage. Taste | Very strong bitter almond characteristic, stony and roasty, only subtly sloe- and juniper-like, somewhat resinous and coniferous, marzipan, citrus, caramel, cloves, mint, slightly oxydized notes, green walnuts, elegant balance of sugar and acid, fairly full-bodied and long.

    We at the Fairytale Distillery are delighted to announce the launch of our latest gin,  just in time for Christmas. Of course it is our Highland Christmas Gin !

    Thomas and the team have recreated those  memories of Christmas fare; the wonderful  smell of Mince pies and Christmas cake! So, in addition to our normal award winning recipe of London Dry Gin, we have added  Star Anise, Cinnamon, Orange, Dates and Raisins.

    We believe we have produced a gin that encapsulates the taste of  traditional Christmas fare while still maintaining our award winning London Dry Gin base. Don't delay; this gin is a limited edition, small batch product which we thoroughly recommend to you all. Additionally, to  further support that Christmas feeling, you might want to try adding a slice of Tangerine peel as a garnish.

    Let us know what you think!  Best wishes to you all for the coming Festive season from Thomas and the team at the Fairytale Distillery, here in the North West Highlands of Scotland. Slainte!
