|6cl bottle of Lysh sloe and almond gin liqueur -|
adorable reindeer not included!!
A bottle of local Welsh liqueur.
Last year I told you about the Condessa Black Cherry Liqueur which went down a treat with a tall cold glass of coke.
However, this year my best friend bought me a bottle of Lysh Sloe and Almond Gin liqueur which I am recommending to anyone with a sweet tooth who wants something a little different in their Christmas liqueur cabinet this year.
The company was established in 2004 and uses the fruit from the orchards and hedgerows on the Montgomeryshire family farm to make delicious Damson Gin and Sloe and Almond Gin liqueurs.
Extremely sweet but balanced by the almond flavouring - which I feel is a very Christmassy flavour - enjoy on the rocks or as a base to a tall flute of champagne.
Interestingly, the family are dead-set on the issue of sustainability with all the fruit picked from the orchard and fields of Berthfawr farm. Any surplus fruits picked are then planted as seedlings to acquire new blackthorn and damson plants, they are then planted on the farm as new bushes and hedges as part of the Tir Gofal agri environment scheme.
Delicious and environmentally friendly - a perfect gift for Back to the Roots readers!
