Hedgerow Gin: How to Make Your Own

I am sharing the combination I made. Each batch of Hedgerow Gin is personal so I’d say use what is available in your area and what you fancy. I envy those you who can really go meandering about the hedgerows, putting together a wonderful wild blend!

  • 8 ounces Italian Prune Plums , halved and pitted
  • 8 ounces mixed hedge berries (red raspberries, golden raspberries, blackberries)
  • Pinch of Rosehips
  • 2 cups Gin
  • 1 ½ cups Granulated Sugar


  • Place all ingredients in a wide mouth glass jar with sealing lid. 
  • Turn the jar up and down weekly to disperse the sugar in the liquid. Place in a dark pantry or cupboard for a year. And if you can’t wait a year, taste it after 3 months and then decide if you are ready to drink it or leave it be! When ready to consume, pour liquid through a sieve or filter and retain the fruits to eat.
