A special edition of Papillon's wonderful Sloe Gin which has been two years in the making. Locally handpicked sloes have been steeped for the first year in gin, and then moved to mature in a Pedro Ximenez sherry cask for the second year, giving it a lovely depth of flavour. Sweetened with a little Dartmoor heather honey and sugar. Jammy with marzipan notes. Sip neat for a traditional serve.
Papillon Dartmoor Distillery is the first of its kind within the Dartmoor National Park. Adam and Claire, the owners and distillers, both grew up here and enjoy sharing its special qualities through their small-batch gin. They named the Distillery Papillon because they donate 1% from every bottle to a local Butterfly Conservation project, and volunteer with them surveying/monitoring fritillaries in their local area on Dartmoor.
