Sloemotion make an award winning range of hedgerow fruit liqueurs and gins using traditional methods at Green Farm based just north of York.
Sloemotion is a small family business based at Green Farm, in the village of Barton-le-Willows, just north of York. The rural surroundings of Green Farm were the inspiration for development and growth of the business. It was being proactive and planting protective grasses and wildflower borders along field edges and ceasing annual hedge cutting, that allowed fruits, such as sloes to flourish. This was the seed from which Sloemotion developed; from small beginnings the business has blossomed and is now a family-run business with brothers Joff and Julian Curtoys at the helm with an award-winning team behind them.
They began with their signature product, Sloe Gin, and over the last 10 years extended the product lines to a range of upto nine hedgerow fruit liqueurs; in 2017 they launched their Hedgerow Gin, followed swiftly by its colourful cousin, Hedgerow Gin with Rhubarb and Raspberry.
The business believes that traditional methods and great taste are what sets them apart from the rest. Each of their products, over the last 10 years has been honoured with Great Taste gold stars, their Damson Gin has won a World Gin Award and in 2016 the business received the Producer and Maker award at the prestigious White Rose Awards, run by Welcome to Yorkshire. In November 2018 a highlight for Sloemotion was their Hedgerow Gin with Rhubarb and Raspberry being named ‘Best Yorkshire Spirit’ in the Deliciously Yorkshire Produce awards.
Coming soon in Summer 2019, Sloemotion will be opening their doors to the public for the first time, to tell the Sloemotion story. Look out on their website for further information and news.
Our range of hedgerow fruit liqueurs
Sloe Gin Truffles are an after-dinner treat or an indulgent accompaniment to a morning coffee.
A fruity sauce, packed with a bit of a punch. It is a perfect partner on a burger or in a bacon sarnie, a tasty accompaniment with scrambled eggs or cheese on toast.
The rich fruitiness of the damson combines fantastically with our classic gin to provide a wonderful tangy mouth feel, in this well-established country liqueur.
The mellow and deep flavour of the fruit combines delightfully with earthy, peaty notes of the whisky to create a deliciously smoky liqueur.
The deep fruity notes of the port combine beautifully with the aromatic cherry taste of the sloe.
