Rutte Sloe Gin consists of a blend of sloe berries steeped in gin, sloe berry distillate and a touch of traditional malt wine and herbs. The end result is a well-balanced sloe gin with a full, fruity palate

DID YOU KNOW

Sloe Gin is made by steeping berries in gin. Rutte uses the method, but also distills the berries by themselves, which gives our Sloe Gin an extra fruity taste with strong almond notes. The steeped botanicals provide the finishing touch.
