Seasonal Gin Cocktails

Just in time for the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness Slingsby has released its Blackberry flavoured gin.

Although it initially comes over as quite bitter sweet, once the tonic has taken effect the floral hints of violet come through, followed by notes of rich blackberry jam and a beautifully sweet finish giving it a well-rounded mouthfeel.
