These liqueurs can be poured over ice, added to coffee, mixed with cream or other mixers to create cocktails, or just enjoyed by themselves after a meal.
Prohibition kits produce an amazing 21% alcohol by natural fermentation. Fun and easy to make, and great value.
Only sugar and water to add to make 6 by 75cl bottles, with brewing sugar offering the cleanest & quickest ferment.
Tip:when fermenting these products, keep the temperature at the bottom of the recommended scale to assist the production of fine liqueurs.
Sloe Gin (Gordons Style)£12.95
The kits in this range produce 4.5 litres (6 bottles) of liqueur at a strength of approximately 21% ABV.
Each requires an additional 1600 grams of granulated white sugar or brewing sugar.
In producing this level of alcohol by fermentation the yeast is being pushed to the top end of its natural alcohol producing capabilities.
To enable it to do this IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE TEMPERATURE OF THE FERMENATION IS KEPT CONSTANTLY WITHIN THE RANGE OF 18-22°C - preferably toward the lower end of the temperature range.

Brewing & Winemaking Sugar - 1kg£2.10
This will produce a finer, cleaner & faster ferment.
The sugar is a spray dried glucose (aka dextrose) which dissolves easily in cold liquids to form a syrup and importantly leaves no after taste.
Being 100% fermentable, it promotes fast fermentation & can be used for priming during the secondary fermentation.
It is is highly recommended for use in making beers, liqueurs and wines in preference to household sugar.
Well worth the extra pence per pint or bottle.
