Raspberry Gin

Raspberry Gin
19th October, 2016

There is something special about the flavour and scent of fresh raspberries that always remind me of holidays in Scotland during my youth and as I've grown up I've always loved to cook with them in puddings. In recent years I've come to play with them more and more often as part of my discovery of distilling and this recipe has quickly become a staple of gin appreciation.

Everything below is per litre of gin. Use a 1.5 to 2 litre Kilner jar.


  • 500 g raspberries
  • 100 g sugar
  • 1 litre gin


    In the kilner jar, add all the sugar and 250 mls of gin

    Mix and shake until the sugar has dissolved

    Add the raspberries and remainder of the gim and give a good shake

    Seal and ensure you give the gin a gentle shake every day

    Leave for 10 days before decanting

    To decant, pour into a funnel through a double layer od scalded muslin cloth into a jug

    You may have to do this twice to make less cloudy

    Pour into sealable bottles and chill

    To serve, mix with tonic to your preference or have as a shot
