..they're supposed to taste nice.. perhaps they will with a  bit more time but right now they look a lovely deep blue colour but taste both sour and bitter at the same time.Hmmm...Ah  :idea: :idea:

Cwm Farml Reserve
Welsh Artisnal
Signature SpecialPesticide free, Welfare friendly
Honeyberry Gin.

On the grounds that however cr@P it tastes there's always someone wanting to be the special first person to discover the newest exclusive? Got to be £40 a bottle then??  :roflanim:
Only snag is that I've only got one small bush with a couple of dozen berries...so my exclusive carribean island will have to wait.

They need intense sunshine to fully ripen. The kind you get in Canada or Siberia (yes, they both have much nicer and warmer summer than UK!)
