The Hepple story started in one of England’s last wild sanctuaries, in the remote moors of Northumberland, the whipping winds amongst the age of Juniper bushes at Hepple, and the pursuit of a gin to make the perfect dry martini. The only way to capture the wild heart of this juniper was to completely rethink how the gin was made, thus the Triple Technique was born. The Triple Technique is comprised of a copper pot still, glass vacuum still, and a super critical extraction.
Our sloe and hawthorn gin was inspired by the berries that grow wild on the moorlands surrounding the Hepple distillery. Expertly distilled using Hepple’s high fidelity distilling technique and rested on berries for over six months, this is a rich, spicy, complex spirit: the cocktail-makers choice for all seasons.

Uses Hepple’s high fidelity distilling system to extract fresher, fuller flavours.
Hepple Sloe and Hawthorn Gin is an unusually, full, intense and dry take on the conventional Sloe Gin. Built for bar professionals and cocktail lovers, flavours have been captured more faithfully than normally possible through our pioneering Triple Technique. Including dry notes of hawthorn berries and amplified by supercritically extracted juniper, this is a blast of colour from the Hills of Hepple.
