Surely we are talking of a fruity Sloe Gin here?

Juniper brandy?

have you not heard the "maxim" of.........

"just because we can do something, it doesn't necessarily follow that we should" :lol: :lol: :lol:

I just fail completely to be able to follow how those two particular flavour properties could match in any way - all I can imagine is a mega flavour conflict :roll: :?

Some grappa has a very short ageing in a juniper barrel. Very easy to overdo it though. Use sparingly.

The words" artificial" and "synthetic" stand out from the tasting notes in the link.
As phantom say's, just because we can, should we?
I could eat a deep fried a mars bar, but have never been tempted. :lol:

Seem to recall being 9 parts pissed and still thinking YUM (twas certainly a change from a "messy burger" in Pompey)........
