When I was a small child, I remember watching my grandmother making her famous (well famous in our house!) raspberry gin. It was a summer tradition in our family, made religiously every year taking advantage of the bountiful crop of berries at the bottom of the garden. I watched with wide eyes as she carefully mixed the fresh berries with the spirit; the smell of the fruit still evokes this treasured childhood memory. Come Christmas time we had a wonderful stock of handmade delights which I always longed to sample. Of course, back then I wasn’t allowed!
Moving on 25 years or so I continue that beloved family tradition. At first my family were my tasters and friends, my first customers, selling my homemade gin and vodka infusions at school events. It quickly became a firm favourite with my mum-chums who would ask surreptitiously, “got any more of your booze ready yet?”.
A quintessentially British luxury lifestyle brand, thoughtfully created by hand and heart
I continue to make Lone Stag Spirits in my kitchen at home. The volumes are considerably higher now, but the traditional methods remain, our soused fruits are made into our Lone Stag Frisky Fruit chefs accompaniments and handmade chocolate truffles.
We are enjoying white knuckle roller coaster ride of this building this business, we provide flexible work to our local lovelies, so they can work around their family life. There is a wonderful community spirit which has developed where everyone has a part to play we endeavour to build a thoughtful brand with high values, we hope we can make a difference and allow people to flourish.
I continue to be inspired by the journey that brought me here, my love of family and home and my appreciation of quintessential British country life.
So, welcome to Sloane Home. A quintessentially British luxury lifestyle brand but above all else, a Welsh family tradition, thoughtfully created by hand and heart.
