OMG! i mean it... O M G!!
This really is nectar of the Gods. I kid you not when i declare it to be
"Worlds Finest Apple & Damson Gin"
I read something, somewhere about England having been home to the Apple Gin, many moons hence, but that it isn't really made here anymore. And last year i made the Damson Gin from my Brother's Fruits.... which was great (if i remember correctly... if i actually can remember at all!!)
And i was sat with a glut of Apples also..... and so came the Apple & Damson Gin.
I wasn't that keen on the idea. I am not a great fan of Apple as a 'flavour' ya know? It can be a bit Apple-y.
Anyway, the fruit, sugar and gin have been steeping in a jar for a few months now so i decided to strain it and bottle it, ready for the bracing Autumn weeks ahead.
Seriously... it is amazing! so Bloooooomin YUM x
Of course it was tempting to eat the fruit..... but think about what alcoholic content it has now adopted!?
And it was a Sunday, and i had a Birthday Party 'pick up' run to fulfill....
Besides, the Damsons have stones in so it would have been a bit faffy to eat around them without breaking an expensive dental crown.
You will, of course, be pleased to know that i made TWICE as much Sloe Gin also.
It isn't ready yet, but i do think it so very important to have a second homemade alcoholic beverage, with which to perform a comparison consensus on Christmas Day....
Seriously good my friends,
