- 700 milliliters of gin
- 800 grams of sloe berries
- 280 grams of granulated sugar
- A single star anise
- A handful of cloves
- A pair of crushed cinnamon sticks
- A dash of nutmeg
- Make sure the sloe berries are absolutely dry after giving them a good wash.
- Using a pointed object, such a pin or fork, puncture each fruit to release its juices and tastes.
- Pack the Kilner Clip Top Jar with the prepared berries. After adding the sugar, spices, and gin, put the container in a dry, dark area.
- Every few days, turn the jar upside down and give it a gentle shake to let the components combine and improve the flavor.
- Give the combination a steeping time of two to three months (the longer the steeping duration, the more heightened the flavor).
- To serve, strain the liquid through muslin fabric and pour it into separate Kilner Clip Top bottles.
- After filtering, adjust sweetness by adding additional sugar to taste.
