Spiced Pomegranate Gin

Make this gorgeous spirit at least two weeks ahead – the longer you leave it the better.

Ingredients

  • 1 clementine
  • 3 pomegranates
  • 350 g caster sugar
  • 200 ml pomegranate juice
  • 12 whole peppercorns
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 star anise
  • 1 litre Bombay Sapphire gin

Method

  1. Zest and juice the clementine, then remove the seeds from the pomegranates.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a pan, except the pomegranate seeds and gin.
  3. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to a gentle boil then take off the heat and leave to cool.
  4. Add the pomegranate seeds and gin and decant into a large glass container or several glass bottles. Leave to macerate for 2 weeks, or as long as possible.
  5. Strain and pour into your chosen bottles (leave unstrained if you think it looks more interesting). It will keep in a cool, dark place for a few months.
