A true celebration of the English countryside, this beautifully crafted drink brings back nostalgic reminders of sloe foraging trips for the Banks family.
Combining our 2019 vintage of sloe gin with an apple and anise hyssop syrup, the Sloe “Bramble” is a celebration of Tommy and James’ fond childhood memories spent with their Grandmother. Keswick Apples – Mary Banks’ favourite – have been hand-picked from the family’s own trees, before being juiced and combined with dried anise hyssop from the Black Swan garden to create a beautifully intense, acidic syrup. The sophisticated addition of a fennel distillate brings subtle flavours of liquorice and aniseed, creating a unique depth of flavour without overwhelming the palate.
A crowd-pleasing cocktail that oozes herbaceous complexity, this drink truly encapsulates the Banks’ strong family heritage and inherent connection to Oldstead.
