    1. Tough doesn't describe it! But if you make some more next year and the year after etc etc, you know from two years onwards you'll have a constant supply of delicious amber wine. And suddenly you circle of friends will multiply by ten ~:0)

      I'm not sure about using rum. Vodka and gin each have a fairly neutral taste, whereas the rum might be too strong to allow the fruit taste to come through fully. Well worth a go though. Please let me know what the result is.

      Thanks, John
