Golden color. Attractive aromas and flavors of apricot bonbons, caramel frosting, and spice with a supple, fruity medium body and a tangy, peppery tropical citrus, plum pie, and toffee finish. Very tasty and a lively balance of fruit and oak. Try in Old Fashioned cocktails.

Fruit Brandy is the default term for all Brandies that are made from fermenting fruit other than grapes. Fruit Brandies, except those made from berries, are generally distilled from fruit wines. Berries tend to lack enough sugar to make a wine with sufficient alcohol for proper distillation, and thus are soaked (macerated) in high-proof spirit to extract their flavor and aroma. The extract is then distilled once at a low proof.
