Broken Bones' take on Sloe Gin is intense with less sugar and higher ABV.

Why would you name your company "Broken Bones"? The distillery was founded in Slovenia by Boštjan Marušič, Borut Osojnik, and Polona Preskar. They hadn’t named their fledgling business yet and were filling barrels of Whisky for aging. Boštjan and Borut had both just come from the hospital because one had broken a leg and the other his nose. As they tell it, the bones healed but the name stuck. They produce a tidy range of five Gins and a couple of Whiskies using custom-made stills in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia.

The award-winning Broken Bones London Dry Gin is utterly delicious and a great base for many of their other Gins, including the Sloe Gin. Sloe berries are infused in the Gin for 6 months before sugar is added, bringing out the sweet aromas of ripe plums and nutty marzipan notes. With less sugar and higher alcohol content that clocks in at 66 proof, it's an intense and different take on the style ― but a welcome one.

Deep Brown Sherry

Nose / Aroma / Smell
It's an enticingly aromatic nose with aromas of ripe plums and rosehip, as well as a distinct nuttiness with almond and marzipan notes.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The sweetness is toned down, letting the rich fruitiness of the sloe berries shine.

Finish
The finish is long with the notes lingering.

It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
