Made the old-fashioned English way. We waited for the first frost and then went to Tassie to Catherine’s old home town in Northern Tasmania. We picked 102 kg of berries from a friend’s farm (Thanks Prue and Nick x). We spent a lovely couple of days picking on their beautiful farm. The Blackthorns (Prunus spinosa or Sloe) were originally planted in Tasmania as hedge rows by English settlers. Blackthorns were useful as they provided protection to to farmers for their valuable livestock and the berries also made the beloved Sloe Gin tipple reminding them of back home in England. These sloes are steeped in history and in our award winning gin....Enjoy!
