Blackberry Vodka and Gin

We’ve got a great alcohol infusion idea for you today; blackberry vodka and blackberry gin. Sound delicious? Then read on…

We used foraged blackberries, which were picked nearly four months ago to make this richly coloured liquor. Following the simple instructions from the Kilner Sloe Gin Set, we then made one litre of blackberry gin and one litre of blackberry vodka.

It really is easy, you just need to follow three simple steps:

  1. Add sugar
  2. Keep in a dark cupboard (for around 4 months)
  3. Turn once a week

We then used a Kilner label gift set and some 0.25l Kilner bottles to store our blackberry goodness so we could use them as home made and personal gifts for our friends and family this Christmas.
