  • Details

    Based just outside Sheffield City Centre, Bryn Hawkins set up his own distillery in 2020 - completely self-taught, he reads as much as he could before actually distilling to ensure he could hit the ground running without wasting stock through experimentation.

    Sloe Gin is actually pretty tricky to get right - sloes are naturally pretty sour, so Sloe Gin needs an addition of sugar to knock down the sharpness and bring out the fruitier notes. However quite a lot of Sloe Gin releases either overload the sugar quantity, making it sweet and almost gunky, or don't put enough in which results in a dry, almost bitter spirit.

    Fortunately, Bryn does a LOT of work with each batch he makes to ensure the balance is spot-on. There's a lovely contrast of sweet and tart here, with the berry notes being pronounced and clear. It's incredibly enjoyable to drink chilled from the fridge on it's own, or added to a glass of bubbly or even soda water. For something a bit different, try a dash over the top of really good vanilla ice cream too!
