    Does anyone know where I can buy bottles of Sloe wine please. I know it can be made at home, but, knowing my luck, it'd ferment so much, i'll end up blowing the place up!
    My sister was given a bottle at some fete, her and the resident knobhead went to. It's very much like Port, quite nice.
    Personally I prefer cider, but I wouldn't mind purchasing a few bottles of this stuff.

    They have had a sloe-based alcoholic substance in Lidl, at times. I'll try to remember to look...

    It's probably not a permanent offering, I only remember seeing it that one time.

    Do ask the inmates, they generally have a good idea of what's going on.

    Search only brought up Sloe Gin. Might say sod it and just get a bottle of Port. Either way, 1 glass will do the trick.

    There's also Oriental Gin in Lidl (maybe Mrs P would appreciate some?)

    I don't like wine, unless its Mulled or Dessert, but now I'm wondering what Sloe Wine tastes like.....

    I found it to be very much like Port. I'm not really a drinker of any sorts, but I could get quite used to having a tipple of Sloe wine.
