Clear color. Fruity aromas of persimmon, ripe clementine, quince, and honeycrisp apple with a silky, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light body and a peppery, breezy pineapple coulis, mixed peppercorns, and lime peel finish. A fruity brandy for summer punches.

Clear brandy is a category that encompasses unaged grape brandies that do not fit in well-known classifications such as eau-de-vie, pisco, or slivovitz. These are often regional specialties like Rakia or Singani with a fruity character that is not diluted by wood aging. Most of these are meant for cocktails, like Pisco Sours, but the finest can be served neat.
