    Andy, you mention that you prefer not to use darker sugars. My favourite variation on sloe gin is to use a very dark muscovado sugar. The initial taste is very bitter but this mellows to a rich caramel after a year or two – make one batch with the muscovado, one with white sugar and then when it comes to bottling use up the odd-ends for a blend.
