So a lot of the wine and alcohol that we have been making at my house has now started to come to fruitation (if that’s even a word). Basically it’s done brewing, and ready to get us all sloshed!
We made two Rosè wines. One black cherry, and one strawberry. They both came out fantastic with the cherry one seeming to have a lot more alcohol. No idea why.
I have a blackberry port bubbling up in a Demi John. I’ve had a taste sample to see if it’s progressing and it’s blooming fantastic. Very fruity, very alcoholic, very sweet, and very nice! So I will be bottling that into 1/2 bottles for consumption. Port is drank in moderation, and I’ve only made a small batch. So it will be used sparingly.
We also decided that our brewing name will be called ‘Silver Throne’. We thought using a family name has been done, and done, and done again! So we decided to go with something completely different. But it’s part of a story from our family’s legacy of wine making. Way before I was even born!
Ive decided I’m going to experiment with more fruit and create a crazy drink that’s silky smooth, refreshing, but alcoholic. I’m not sure what fruit yet but I’ll play around and come up with something. I’m going to name the drink something funny but haven’t a name yet, and it will hopefully be a ‘people’s friend’ at house party’s!! Hmm we’ll see.
