Deze gin in prachtige fles uitgezocht uit nieuwsgierigheid en omdat ik van olifanten houd.
De smaak is heerlijk, licht zoet maar niet te zoet, en goed met tonic maar ook puur met ijs.
En je steunt er ook nog een goed doel mee. Dan smaakt het nog lekkerder. Top!
Elephant Sloe Gin
Elephant Sloe Gin combines the premium London Dry Gin with the classic flavour of wild fresh sloe berries. The fruit is harvested by hand and carefully selected; keeping only the best berries for the sloe gin production. Elephant Sloe Gin is strictly limited to one vintage a year.
Macerated in the gin for several months, these wild berries provide their typical flavour and warm red colour to the spirit.
Compared to other sloe gins, it has a relatively low sugar content paired with a higher alcohol volume. This makes it ideally suited to mixing in cocktails as well as enjoying it neat.
Nose - Elephant Sloe Gin has a richly rounded, lightly sweet and exquisitely fruity bouquet as well as a typical warm red colour to the spirit.
Palate - The deliberately discreet addition of sugar triggers a perfect balance between tart and sweet notes; without the need for additional artificial flavours.
The founders were inspired to create Elephant Gin following their own adventures in Africa.With a vision to conserve the wildlife they feel so passionately for, they decided to launch a product that would help conservation trusts. They strongly believe that this generation has a responsibility to support the African wildlife today, so others can continue to enjoy it in the future. With every full size bottle sold, Elephant Gin contributes 15% of profits to Big Life Foundation and Space for Elephants, while with each miniature bottle sold, 15% of profits is donated to Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. All of these organisations are devoted to the conservation of the African elephant.
