To cook the grouse; Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6. Season and put the juniper berries inside the cavities of the birds. Tuck a sprig of thyme under each leg and lay two rashers of bacon over each breast. Heat the fat in a roasting tin and sear on each side. Roast for 16 to 20 minutes, depending on size, then remove from the tray and keep warm. Add the root vegetables, any juices, stock, sloe gin and red wine and simmer gently for approximately six minutes. Sieve into a saucepan and check the seasoning.
