Golden amber color. Woody aromas of sawdust, dried stonefruit, cinnamon, and parsley with a slightly chewy, crisp, dryish medium body and a peppery, short-to-medium banana bread, underripe pear, cherry stone, pastry dough, and fresh no 2 pencil finish. An oak-dominated fruit brandy for a fun twist on an Old-Fashioned cocktail.

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.
