History of sloe gin
Historically, the reason for the abundance of blackthorn in the UK goes back to the 17th century. The land was broken up with hedgerows and the blackthorn was a natural way of separating farms and properties. It wasn't long before the pairing of alcohol and sloes became common. Although, originally dubbed as a poor man's port, by the 19th-century distillers had begun to take notice. Popularity grew and the Sloe Gin Fizz was born, and it continues to grow with the help of new ranges and flavours.
