Sloemotion are premium gin and liqueur producers based at Green Farm, in the village of Barton-le-Willows, just north of York. They began 13 years ago after carrying out work to help wildlife on the farm, resulting in a proliferation of sloes growing in the hedgerows; these provided the seed from which Sloemotion was born. From small beginnings the business has blossomed and continues to flourish today with brothers Joff and Julian Curtoys at the helm and an award-winning team behind them.

They began with their signature product, Sloe Gin; and over the last 10 years have extended their product lines to a broad range of hedgerow fruit liqueurs. It was those sloes that led them back to the hedges to gather the six novel hedgerow botanicals used in the Hedgerow Gin for their distillation, alongside the classic London dry gin botanicals. Hedgerow Gin was launched in 2017 followed swiftly in 2018 by the colourful variety and Hedgerow Gin with Rhubarb & Raspberry.

The care that is taken with the hand-picked hedgerow botanicals, herbs & fruits that enhance their drinks is evident in every sip. At Green Farm they use traditional steeping and blending methods in their production of the liqueurs as well as distilling the spirits using their iStill. With its low costs, and most importantly its’ environmental efficiency, the iStill works effortlessly at Green Farm bringing their craft distilling into the 21st century.

The business believes that great taste combined with a strong aesthetic is 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 won a World Gin Award and in 2016 the business received the Producer and Maker award at the 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.

The rural surroundings of fields, woodland and hedgerows around Green Farm are still the inspiration for development and growth of the business and are at the heart of every decision made. In line with their ‘Life on the Hedge’ motto, Sloemotion continue to innovate and inspire with their new creations.
