SPIRITS REVIEW
"Infinitely better than any other Sloe Gin out there.Unlike the bulk of Sloe Gins out there today, Plymouth Sloe Gin is made from a excellent gin base and fresh sloe berries."
SUPERCALL
"Using its distinctive Plymouth gin as a base, Plymouth’s sloe gin is totally unlike anything else on the list. It comes at you first with smells of yeast and sweet lemongrass. On the palate, bright citrusy juiciness mixes with dirt and pine needles, dried plum and cranberries. “This assaults my palate, in a good way,” one taster commented."

A tradition of the British Royal Navy is to raise the Gin Pennant (a triangular green flag with a white vertical stripe down the center) when in port as a signal to invite officers from other ships to come aboard for hospitality…and Gin of course! This easy to drink ‘Fruit Cup’ style cocktail is a celebration of that ethos; bringing new friends and old together over a glass of gin!
