1. Remove any skin from the venison. Beat the oil with the red wine, vinegar and half the crushed juniper berries. Marinate the meat in this mixture for 2 - 3 hours.

4. Dilute the juices in the pan with the gin. Whip 2 tablespoons of the cream until stiff. Stir 2 tablespoons of the marinade, the remaining cream and crushed juniper berries and the lemon juice into the sauce, then season with pepper.

5. Bring to the boil, mix with the whipped cream and serve with the venison.
