Distilled from grain to glass, using local Virginia wheat, we put our spin on a traditional sloe gin by also sourcing locally farmed aronia berries. The Aronia berries give this fruit- forward gin cordial a vibrant red hue; a nod to the more traditional sloe style color. The mouth-puckering aronia, or chokeberry, is a sour berry that is typically used in wines or jams, but we chose to highlight this fruit’s tart character to balance the slightly sweetened end result. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product, and we are very excited to bring DC it’s first distilled Sloe rendition gin cordial. We love all things local; we shop local, we support local, we are a local business, so naturally we reached out to nearby farms to see what fruit could be used, and the recipe just fell into place once we found our ideal berry.
