leopold organic sloe gin 500ml
DESCRIPTION: leopold organic sloe gin is a 100 % handcrafted wheat gin combined with 6 months macerated organic sloes. the wheat grows on the distillers own farm in austria and is distilled twice with juniper berries and our leopold spirits recipe of botanicals. the high-proof sloe gin ages up to one year in stainless steel so that it can develop its character. after the aging process, the gin gets its drinkable strength of 27% vol. alc. for the refinement, some beet sugar from the house owned farm is added to create a balance of sweet and sourness in smell and taste. due to the high-water quality of the own springs in upper austria, the sloe gin gets its very mild and soft finish.
CONCOCTION: enjoy leopold organic sloe gin on the rocks, as a leopold & tonic or use it to create a sloe gin fizz, a negroni or any other quality concoctions. recommended also with lemonade, ginger ale and root beer.
