No but I have made blackberry brandy and that was just delicious
i haven't but i've made some Blackberry gin and elderberry gin for Christmas and i'm making some Blackberry vodka.

My dad has made all kinds of wine and ‘rum’. They were all awful. I used to take his strawberry wine to parties when I was a teenager, and no one drank them. They might still be doing the rounds now.
