Sloe gin: An update

1 Nov

About a month and a half ago, P and I made our first ever batch of sloe gin. We hand pricked each one and have been religiously turning the bottles every week to stir up the sloes inside.

Now, half way through the process, the liquer looks amazing! It has gone a deep pinky red from the fruit and appears to be a bit thicker as well. The sugar has completely dissolved into the alcohol. I’m planning on bottling this up in small bottles and creating hand made labels to give them as gifts over Christmas. I’ll do another post when they’re all finished so that you can see the final result!
