Damson gin-smells of almonds
I have made Damson gin for the first time. I had some frozen damsons which I steeped in gin for about 3 months (as per instructions). I have just strained and bottled it, but there is a very strong smell of almonds. I am aware that the stones contain a cyanide based substance, so I am worried that this may have seeped into the gin. Is it safe to drink? Or should I get rid of it?
thanks in advance
