Hmm, homemade sloe gin...with a bug!

I've picked some sloe berries over the weekend, washed, picked the best ones and now made sloe gin. I was so looking forward to pouring out the beautiful pink liquid in December and enjoying it.

However, while I was shaking the bottle today, I saw a sloe berry with a bug half-sticking out of it! Eww, usually I'm not very icky about bugs but this is a bit gross. Is it okay to drink this later? Shall I pretend that I didn't see this?
