Let's think about this.

Romnerd et al, This is not a bad website, the only unfortunate thing is that Blackthorn believes that his way of making sloe gin is the only way, and he actively discourages any kind of experimentation ('stick to the recipe at sloe.biz' or 'keep it simple' are the usual answers to any question). Jus...

You could make your own using vodka, sloes (obviously), sugar (bit less than normal sloe gin) and some aniseed essential oil (illicium verum).

First timer here as well.

Glycerine is commonly added to home distilled spirits to take the rough edge off without adding too much sweetness.

Since the normal sloe gin recipe includes quite a bit of sugar the effect of any glycerine would be nil. Wouldn't bother with it myself in sloe gin.
