Whilst you may have to wait 3 months to try it, this will make the perfect warming tipple over the Winter months.
300g damsons, ripe, washed
Wash the ripe damsons and gently prick each one with a fork.
- Place the damsons into a clean 1L jar along with the sugar and gin. Close the lid and give it a good shake.
- Store in a cool dark place for 3 months. After 3 months, strain the damsons and taste the gin. If you'd like it a little sweeter, you can add more sugar at this stage.
- Transfer to a bottle; the damson gin is now ready to drink, though really benefits from ageing. We would recommend making a few batches so you can drink one and keep one for the next year (which will taste even better).
