SLOEmotion is a small family business based in the Howardian Hills to the north-east of York in the megalopolis that is Barton-le-Willows or Sloe Central as they call it. Started back in 2002 on Manor Farm near Malton where SLOEmotion was born moving to their bigger and better premises in 2007. Respect for the environment also plays a big part in SLOE's operation. They use recyclable materials wherever they can and recycle what they can – the sloes for their truffles and chutney come from the sloe liqueur making process! Even the sample cups they use at shows are biodegradable. Their sloes are mostly locally sourced and because sloes can only come from well-managed wildlife-friendly hedges it means only farmers who look after their hedges can supply them.
Cherry and plum flavours, with hints of elderflower and tangy rhubarb notes, with a slightly dry finish.
We recommend serving 1 part Sloemotion No.7 to 4 parts lemonade, with added slices of citrus and summer fruits, a sprig of garden mint and lots of ice. For those who want to forage further afield, hedgerow herbs such as lemon balm, or summer blossom such as elderflower, make for flavoursome additions.
