Interesting idea, I wonder if you could make sloe whisky and if it would taste nice?

Pernod has a Yellow hue mate. I think in other parts of the world the pernod/ouzo drink is also Irak.

People do make Sloe Whiskey, and find it OK.

I made 15 bottles of Sloe Gin last year, we have tried variations, but come to the conclusion that Gin is the popular choice for very good reason. I think it is a perfect marriage.

Ok OK OK,

Here is a secret for booze making that I will tell only to you........

30 years ago I used to work for Tooheys (a local BIG brewer) and a friend of mine got this secret out of one of the OLD books on boozemaking, just before it died! (melodramatic huh?) :mrgreen:

Anyway if you are making liquers you need the drink to have body, you do this by getting the highest potency, meanest rotgut vodka you can and adding milk to it. I think the proportions are about 1 part milk to 4 vodka but experiment - 30 years is a long time! :lol:

You filter out the precipitate and bingo! Booze with body. Add colours and flavours and there is your liquor.

Happy drinking!
