Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g blackberries
750ml gin
115g caster sugar
125ml water

Method

  1. Divide the blackberries between 2 x 750 ml sterilised bottles. Top up with the gin. Seal and store in a cool, dark place. Shake the bottles every second day for 1 week, then leave for 1–3 months to mature.
  2. To finish the gin, strain the gin through muslin and discard the blackberries. Return the gin to the bottles. Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and place over low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Leave to cool before adding to the gin a little at a time, tasting after each addition to ensure the gin does not become too sweet. When the flavour is to your liking, seal the bottles again and store for up to 12 months.

Cook’s note

  • Mulberries work equally well in this easy recipe.
