Opyos Sloe Gin
Out of stock
The manufacturing process of Opyos Luxembourg Sloe (lëtz. Schléiwen) Gin has begun in October 2018 when the first frost has hit our Luxembourgish hedgerows. That frost reduces the bitterness of the sloe berries and makes them at least a bit more palatable. After being hand-picked one by one, the berries are macerating, together with organic raw cane sugar, in our award-winning Opyos Luxembourg Dry Gin for several months. This long period allows the gin to penetrate the berries and extract all the crucial components from the skin, flesh as well as the pit.
After the maceration, the soaked sloe berries are being pressed carefully so that we can gather the entire flavour, mouthfeel and colour that come from this little inconspicuous berry. Between pressing and bottling, we give the Sloe Gin another couple of weeks so that we can collect most of the sediment at the bottom of the tank. As always, we do not chill-filter, nor add anything unnatural, before bottling this liqueur at 26% vol.
