Kay Dekker wrote:Actually, on looking at the Wikipedia page on sloe gin:
"Schlehenfeuer is generally considered German sloe gin. Schlehenfeuer has an alcohol content of about 38% by volume (76° proof) and this higher alcohol content is also the most important difference between Schlehenfeuer and other sloe gins. The most popular commercial brand of Schlehenfeuer, based on white rum, is made by Mast-Jägermeister AG, better known for its product Jägermeister."
So yes, sloe rum does exist, and it's a commercial product.
