Seems pricey to me for what's effectively a gin/mixer

Sloe Gin is usually more expensive.
I made some myself last year. 1 Litre of Gin, 500grams of sloe berries which come from the Blackthorn bush ( September time) and 250grams of sugar.
**** the sloes to release the juice and place into litre of gin with the sugar, shake every day for a few minutes for the first week then once a week for next few months. Total 2-3 months left in a dark place.

It was so nice, the bottle only lasted 2 days.

This is currently £12 on ocado and £14 at Asda so cheaper when taking into account the delivery costs. Sainsburys also selling for £15 so the same as the Amazon price with delivery.

And if you fancy sloe gin right now / sometime BEFORE the next Autumnal crop of sloes are ripe on the hedgerows?

Exactly.

Well tough you should have thought ahead(you may still find some anyway)
I for one will be buying the gin now when it is cheap for next year

I do agree it's cheaper and probably tastier to make your own - but for most people who won't have (and for whom it's probably too late until 3/4 of a year away), this deal is pretty good for the here and now. Don't you think?

Well I have not voted
but I have a freezer full of fruit from the summer that could be made into liqueur
and I dare say your local supermarket has some in their rtc cabinet

good sloe gin is hard to beat in winter but Gordon 's is sweet and vile ....hence it's cheap

#7 Gordon’s Sloe Gin (26% ABV)
The best-selling sloe gin in the UK with the widest distribution, too. If you’ve had commercial sloe gin, it would probably have been this. The modern version uses wild sloes, whereas its predecessor used dry sloes.

Nose: Floral and perfumed, with juniper and a bit of spice.

Taste: This was one of the few sloe gins in our tasting that people had any preconceptions of, but everyone was pleasantly surprised: everyone quite enjoyed its simple, balanced fruitiness and its intriguing notes of earl grey tea.

This was found to be The Best Mixing Sloe Gin

Nice gin, good price. Would anticipate to see similar prices at supermarkets over the festive period. Should probably add pantry into the description/title as I expect to get some on prime :)

I've been experimenting with fruit tea bags (faddy thing the kids bought and used only once) and a bottle of vodka left over from last Christmas. It's been steeping for a week and tastes pretty good already. Should be even better by Christmas.
