Schlehenfeuer has an alcohol content of about 38% by volume (76° proof) and this higher alcohol content is also the most important difference between...

Sloe Gin Christmas pudding?

With it nearly that time of year again (how quickly it comes round!) I was wondering if anybody has or will be making a sloe gin Christmas pudding this year? I'd take my traditional family Christmas pudding recipe and be adding sloes that are left over from the steeping process and adding an amount ...

Re: Sloe Rum?

As to the specifics of rum and sloes: maybe :) I suspect that a white rum would mask the sloe flavour less than a dark rum, but it may be worth trying it with a golden rum. I used some Captain Morgan Dark rum as it was the only rum I had lying around but any cheap dark rum would do I suppose. I sus...

Re: Sloe Rum?

Finally got round to making my sloe rum today (bit later than expected). Added very small amounts of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves along with the sloes and sugar. Smells like Christmas in a bottle already! Do you think it will be ok to use by Christmas or have I left it too late? I know it will be pus...

Re: Elberberry gin - would cooking them first be good?

Uncooked elderberries can cause gastronomic distress, i.e. an evening lent over a bucket!

Don't let that prevent you from wonderfully purple harvests: just a friendly warning!

Re: Sloe Gin and cinnamon

This is my first year making sloe gin and I have made 4 litres of the stuff so far. From my list below you can see what I have added. This way when I make it next year I can decide which one I like the most and just make that particular blend. I'm also making a sloe rum with added cinnamon and nutme...
