last years fruit

Post by sally » 02 Sep 2009, 13:16

I think the fruits I have are damsons as they are too big to drop into the spirit bottles as I understand sloes can be, and I have just found a tub from last year with the fruit still sitting in the gin that I forgot to strain, will it still be useable? or shall I throw it all away. Also, I have several bottles from last year that weren't drunk, but have had 'loose lids' to prevent explosions, can I decant these and drink? I don't want to risk making anyone ill....

be a devil and give it a try, if the mixture is in a sealed bottle I think you may be safe, don't tell your N O K that i suggested this just in case......
