    Nicos,
    I did blackberry vodka a few years ago, left it for 9 months and all that was left was a residue at the bottom, no pips at all. I'd never had that with gin, always pips left. Mind you the vodka was left over from my wedding 35 years before. Vladivar and Cossak. It was in my Ma-in-laws cupboard when she died along with Gordons, Martini, Cinzano and Bacardi. My Father in law was so tight he hid it away after the wedding.

    Maybe you should have rubbed it on your chest like Vicks.
    It's one of the easiest and reliable recipes I've ever done, my other favourite is with pears from Portugal, lovely and fizzy but sends me to sleep.

    Different varieties of rhubarb have different flavours....also depending on the time of year it's picked.
    Maybe you were just unlucky ???
