If I want some now, I just grab some I made in September but if you want some now then buy it, I didnt tell you not to did I. (_;)
Nice brand but it is much sweeter than most sloe gins so not exactly typical.

If you are making your own, which is easy if you have access to sloes, then adding the sugar AFTER soaking the sloes in gin for two months will avoid the oversweet problem.

I personally find this less sweet than other brands and I have tried a few. There is nothing better than making your own, which is dead easy by the way. Got this because it's one of my favourite and my home made stocks have dried up.........must make more next year.
