Warner Edwards Distillery is located in the village of Harrington in rural Northamptonshire. Founded by college buddies Tom and Sion, the distillery is situated in a converted barn on Fall's Farm, which is as functional as it is idyllic. The team are able to call on the natural spring water that flows through Harrington during the distillation process and to cut the final gin back to the required strength and balance.
Just smelling the Harrington Sloe Gin, it’s easy to see why it’s such a crowd pleaser. Red fruit notes and bright cherries burst out. While ruby red in colour, the taste is much deeper as the gin has a lingering complexity. Almonds, marzipan and sloe berries seem to be intertwined with a rounded sweetness and fresh citrus. It’s definitely one to try in cocktails as the slightly higher ABV (for a Sloe Gin) helps it keep it’s flavour when mixed with full bodied liqueurs too.
