About Liqueurs from United Kingdom

About Liqueurs from United Kingdom
The United Kingdom is comprised of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Whiskey of course is the leading spirit. Besides those from Scotland (both single malts and blends), there are some excellent examples from Northern Ireland. These are a bit less robust than those from Scotland, as they are generally triple distilled, making them a bit smoother. Gin from England is the other great spirit of Great Britain (see entry on England)

Top Picks for United Kingdom


Plymouth Sloe Gin
87 points
Bright reddish mahogany color. Fruity aromas and flavors of milk chocolate cherry bon bons, dark berry preserves, spicy pomegranate chutney, and pineapple upside down and banana nut muffin with a glycerous, vibrant, off-dry medium-to-full body and an elegant, medium-long finish that presents suggestions of choke cherry jam on raisin rye toast, wet cedar, molasses licorice cookie, and mint herbal tea finish. A pure, fruity, lightly herbal sloe gin that will mix brilliantly.
