Damson gin

10 mins



Whilst you may have to wait 3 months to try it, this will make the perfect warming tipple over the Winter months. 

The Ingredients

300g damsons, ripe, washed

150g sugar

600ml gin

The Method
  1. Wash the ripe damsons and gently prick each one with a fork.

    1. Place the damsons into a clean 1L jar along with the sugar and gin. Close the lid and give it a good shake.
    1. 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.
    1. 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).
