I have some sloes, collected from beside a bridleway in the depths of Essex. Naturally, i wish to make some sloe gin.
There are many gins. They can have quite different flavours: Gordon's is brute and junipery; Plymouth is oily; Tanqueray is spicy; Bombay Sapphire tastes like aftershave.
What flavours do i want in a gin which i am going to use to make sloe gin?
(if you wish to interpret this question as a coded way of asking which gin i should use to make sloe gin, i will not stop you)
