Launched by the Yorkshire based Sloemotion Distillery to complement their premium foraged Hedgerow Spirits range. Not one but seven spirits were launched in the range, a bold move in these uncertain times. There are three gins in the new range all blended gins, one of which is reviewed here, two rums and two vodkas. Described by their Head Distiller as a 'riot of intriguing and joyful flavours', the Finders Spirits range was created to be more accessible to the market while retaining the companies green credentials.
