Ingredients

  • 300 g peaches - 2 ½, washed and sliced
  • 50 g white sugar
  • 400 ml gin

Instructions

  • Wash and then cut the peaches into slices. Discard the stone. Put the fruit in a wide-mouth jar.
  • Add the gin and sugar. Give it a good swirl to help dissolve the sugar. Then put the jar in the fridge or in a cold dark place.
  • Leave the jar to steep for about a week. Twice a day, give the jar a swirl to help all the sugar dissolve.
  • Strain the gin with a sieve and cloth to remove the peaches. Decant the liquid into a clean bottle.

Notes

Hints, Tips & Variations
  • Use the best quality, ripe but not over-ripe peaches. 
  • Adjust the sweetness to taste.
  • Swap the peaches for nectarines for variety.
  • Add a few almonds to make a peach and almond gin.
  • Orange helps to enhance peach flavour, so add a few shavings of orange zest to the jar.
  • Keep in the fridge once strained. 
How to Serve Peach Gin
  • As is, either over the rocks or straight up.  
  • Add some botanicals. Herbs and berries, such as a few crushed raspberries and a spring of basil, are delicious.
  • Make a peach kir (Kir Pêche) by adding wine, or a Kir Pétillant or Royale with sparkling wine or champagne.
  • Peach pairs wonderfully with blue cheese. A shot of peach gin makes an excellent accompaniment to a cheeseboard.
