Who doesn’t love gin? This apple crumble gin takes some of the best flavours of the much-loved dessert and puts them into a gorgeous seasonal gin.
- 500ml simple gin
- 80g brown sugar
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 2 bramley apples
- 1cm root ginger
- Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Peel and core the apples. Cut into cubes of about 2cm squared and pop into a large jar (I use a 1-litre jar) along with the lemon juice. Shake a little to cover the apple in lemon juice.
Add the sugar, cinnamon and ginger into the jar along with the gin. Seal and shake for a minute or two to dissolve as much of the sugar as you can.
Place in a cool dark place, shaking every day or two. Let it infuse for two weeks then decant using a muslin cloth or a kitchen paper-lined sieve.
- You can use any gin you want, but something very delicately flavoured will be a bit of a waste and if it started out tasting like paint stripper no amount of flavour will save it!
- Remember to sterilise your bottles before adding the gin to them – wash them in hot, soapy water, rinse and pop in the oven on about 100 degrees to dry.
