Who We Are
Founded in 2002, Sloemotion Distillery is an artisan business creating great tasting spirits and liqueurs. We are based at Green Farm, in the village of Barton-le-Willows, just north of York and near to the market town of Malton, Yorkshire’s food capital.
The business began almost by accident, when a farming initiative to improve wildlife habitats resulted in an abundance of sloes. To Joff Curtoys, an ecologist by training, who had grown up drinking his father’s home-made Sloe Gin, an idea began to take shape and Sloemotion was born.The fields, rich meadows, woodlands and especially the tangled hedgerows in North Yorkshire provided the inspiration for the business and are still at the heart of every decision made.

With Joff’s background as a trained farmer/conservationist and then policy advisor on agricultural issues for the RSPB, the ethos and background of Sloemotion is one of respect for the planet.
His passion for wildlife conservation and the environment is ever at the heart of each decision made at the distillery.
