Back in November I acquired some sloes, which meant but one thing sloe gin.
Sloe gin is very easy to make there are but four ingredients sloes, gin, and sugar, the hardest part is the fourth ingredient waiting for at least two months for it to be ready. It should be turned every couple of days for the first month and then every week for the next I try to forget about it in between turnings. Once the two months is up the turning isn’t as important and I try to totally forget about it so that the flavour can really develop but today Stephen unwittingly reminded me about it and with an empty decanter in wait it could be forgotten no longer.
This batch is a bit pale but hey it is all in the taste right?
