Spent this morning straining and bottling last year's sloe gin. Bit of a thin year for sloes last year, so only ten and a half (half bottles) if you see what I mean, but it's quite good stuff. Should be drinkable by Christmas.......... WHOA Horner! It's drinkable now (been doing a quality control test): I mean - should be even better by Christmas. I don't seem able to build up a supply of the stuff these days - only three bottles of the 2011 left.
The photo is of a decanter of sloe gin and glasses ready on the sideboard. In case of visitors that is.
Must now nip up and make meself respectable for Church.
More later perhaps.
