Blackberry whisky

Post: # 289954Post WILDBREW »

recipe 500g - Blackberries.
250g - cane sugar.
600ml – whisky.
1-lt jar or demijohn.
Wash and dry the blackberries.
Put the blackberries, whisky and sugar into a large jar or demijohn.
Shake until the sugar has dissolved or until your arms start to ache.
Put the lid back on the whisky bottle and keep it to one side - there's no need to wash it out.
Keep the container in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
Shake once or twice a day for the first two weeks then once a week for six to eight weeks in total.
You can then decant the liquid back into the original bottle - it is best to strain it through a piece of muslin cloth or kitchen towel using a funnel.

Great with plums too. Although for some reason the recipe I have calls it Plum Brandy - even though it's made with whisky.
