Cranberry gin

Cranberry gin recipe from Berry World

This cranberry gin is vegan and gluten-free and could make a wonderful gift!

The gin will be more or less sweet as the natural sweetness of the berries varies. It’s a good idea to add half of the sugar syrup and try – add more to suit the berries and your taste.

Cranberry gin

Makes 700ml

Prep 30 mins plus 4 weeks to steep

200g (7oz) cranberries

500ml (18fl oz) gin

160g (53⁄4oz) caster sugar

60ml (2fl oz) water

1 Wash the cranberries and put into a sterilised preserving jar. Pour over the gin, seal the lid and put in a dark cool cupboard to steep for at least 4 weeks. In the first week, invert the bottle every other day and once a week for the rest of the time.

2 Once the berries have steeped and you’re ready to bottle, put the sugar and water into a small saucepan over a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved.

3 Strain the now flavoured gin into a jug through some muslin. Add the sugar syrup and stir. Pour the finished gin into a sterilised bottle and label.
