When I say that this is a progress report on the blueberry gin, that's quite an optimistic use of the word 'progress'. At this stage, my little gin experiment has been swooshelling along for exactly a day and a half. So only three months to go then! I've decided to crack into it at the start of December to welcome the start of Advent, the first shiverings of winter and the time when it's officially OK to start telling people that you're excited for Christmas.
I don't need the gin for that, you understand, but a little internal warmth and festive cheer is never a bad thing!
Anyway, I was very pleased with the gin as it's already turning a beautiful purple and I'm looking forward to seeing the lush, rich tones that it will take on as the weeks march on. And if you missed it the first time round, here is the blueberry gin formula in a previous post.
