About the Sloe Gin Fizz Cocktail

To experience the authentic flavor of sloe berries, using Plymouth Sloe Gin is key. Sloes are tiny berries that grow wild in hedgerows around England. Unpleasantly astringent on their own, they develop a rich, tart flavor when infused in gin. The British traditionally used sloe gin in wintry drinks, but it’s become most famous for its turn in America’s refreshing Sloe Gin Fizz, paired with club soda and citrus.
