Does anyone know where I can buy Sloe Gin in Warsaw?

I've looked in a few shops & checked the fine wine & spirits website but nothing so far, any help would be much appreciated

Have you considered making it? It's pretty simple... i think, having never actually made any...

Maybe an upmarket supermarket or deli? It's not that easy to get hold of in the UK...

You may be able to find the Polish near equivalent -- tarniówka. I don't know if British sloe gin is actually made with gin or just called that, but Polish tarniówka (sloeberries = tarnina) uses a grain neutral spirit base without the juniper flavour of gin.

Tarniówka may not be commercially produced but it has long been a favourite fo Polish home blenders (nalewka-makers).

There's a place in Arkadia that has tarniowka.

Otherwise the Ballantynes shop at the top of ul. Krucza might have sloe gin.

Is tarnina easy to find? If so, it's not that difficult to make sloe gin... berries, sugar, and gin...wait a couple of months, imbibe!

It was being sold by the kg in the Stary Kleparz back in October. I now have a few litres of sloe gin & sloe vodka steeping away...
