Making slider having drunk the sloe gin?

I'm told that after drinking all your sloe gin, you keep the used sloe berries in the bottle and top up with cider and leave again for 6-8 weeks.
Is this true, and if anyone has tried it, is it any good?

I have heard people doing that with sherry, but give it a go with the cider, might be nice

I made some a few years ago with some strong cider (8%) and the result was quite drinkable.
It tastes very much like Kriek (sp?) the belgian cherry beer.

Superb. I use to make cider but not using cider apples the cider was both 4% and very poor flavour. I then added to the used sloes starting fermantation off again. This happens because of the sugar on the sloes. Result superb.
