Sloes are disappearing fast from hedges as they are ripe already. Have 3 boxes in my freezer so if you want some you need to be quick. A couple of places we picked had already been harvested but we managed to get the higher ones.

cant you just add tonic to the gin, and coke/orange to the vodka?   Saves faffing about under bushes and risking getting stung by nettles/wasps etc.  :)

Wayne, you are sadly missing in your education. :-) :-)    Sloe gin is one of the finer pleasures of life.

Purely in the interest of scientific research, I am willing to supply the gin if you supply the shoe.   :)
