So as the time for bottling approaches, some questions. Is a jelly bag best to strain through or can I just use some muslin ?? Also if making 'Slider', is it simply a case of filling a bottle with gin soaked Sloes and then covering with cider ??

It's been a thoroughly enjoyable exercise and will make great little gifts.

All the best.

Don't know anything about "Slider", but I do usually strain my sloe gin through a bit of muslin, or a CLEAN handkercheif.

I tend to strain all my hedgerow booze through - a jelly bag, then a coffee filter (mesh NOT paper) then parachute silk. I find that I get a verry fine sediment, especialy with blackberry Vodka, if I do not filter it all very fine.
Call me obsessive - most do - but if the Vodka is tripple distilled then I think it deserves triple filtering! :D
