Dave the Gun's Sloe Gin

This recipe was recommended to me by a friend from Cornwall called Dave. 

Fill a gallon Demijohn to just under half-way with pricked (or cracked after freezing) clean sloes. Add a couple of handfuls of blackberries and a couple of handfuls of rasberries which will act as natural substitutes for the usual sugar. Fill to the top with one litre of gin, one litre of vodka and 70cl of port. Leave until Easter. The result is a fruity, slightly tart and rather potent sloe gin. For those who prefer it sweeter, sugar can be added at that stage to taste.
