Damson gin is really good, especially if you leave it for about 10 years cos you  forgot about it, not being spirit drinkers.   Goes liqueur like.

Round here they make an apéro called Trouspinette.   It's basically a grape based eau de vie (lethal) flavoured with the spring shoots of spiny sloe plants.  Similar sweetness and richness to Pineau de Charente and I've met lots of locals who make it and are astonished when I tell them we Brits make sloe gin with the fruits.

"Slow gin is a good one for hedgerow fruit."

My gins tend to be quick ones!

Ouch!  Sloe, but not so slow to drink, mine also slip down quite fast   :sunny:
