Elephant Sloe Gin
AFRICAN TASTE, GERMAN QUALITY
Elephant Gin is an award-winning handcrafted premium gin of 45% alcoholic volume made with rare African botanicals. While its story started in South Africa, Elephant Gin is handmade in Germany with a focus on the highest quality production standards. All ingredients are hand-selected, bottles custom-made labels hand-written, and production efforts controlled by working in small batches.
The idea for an African-inspired gin evolved while reminiscing about the so-called "ásundowner" drinks after a day out in the South African bush. These sunset cocktails are a big tradition in South Africa and more often than not, they consist of a G&T. The idea was backed by a mutual love of exotic African botanicals and a realisation that these would make interesting additions to a premium gin, alongside more traditional botanicals such as juniper and orange peel.
Nose: Nutty and sweet, with big waves of fresh sloe.
Palate: Sloe is of course the main attraction here, though this is well seasoned with cooking spice and black pepper.
Finish: Lingering sweetness - not sugary, but fresh with blackberry and more sloe.
