"New Zealand’s only Sloe Gin is a strictly limited batch product. Made barrel by barrel in the traditional way, the finest imported Sloe Berries have been steeped in Curiosity Gin for several months in a barrel that was previously used to age Otago Pinot Noir. The resulting luscious red liqueur exhibits the smooth and intense bitter sweet fruit flavours of a classic Sloe Gin with an added rich back note from the Otago Pinot barrel.
Botanicals: Juniper berries, East Coast Manuka berries and leaf, coriander seeds, cardamom pods, fresh Gisborne Orange zest, angelica root, Otago Lavender, cinnamon, star anise, Sloe berries (Blackthorn berries)."

"The team at Curiosity imports sloe berries from the UK and steeps them in Curiosity Gin for several months using a barrel previously used to age Otago Pinot Noir. The gin is sweetened with natural sugar before bottling. It has ripe berry sweetness on the nose, with a hint of marzipan. Rich, bittersweet fruit in the mouth, yet light on the palate, with juniper undertones."
