To make the homemade Navy Strength Sloe Gin. Add one bottle of Slingsby Navy Strength Gin to a sterilized glass container. Prepare 1kg of Sloe berries: Using a folk prick each sloe berry 2 – 3 times, this will allow the gin to infuse. Add the sloes to the gin and seal tightly. Store in a cool dark place for minimum of 3 weeks. The longer the gin is left the better the sloe berries will infuse. Serve in a rocks glass.
