Baitz Apricot Brandy 750ml
Originally from China, arminiaca vulgaris travelled to the west with the Arabs via the Mediterranean coast. The Baitz liqueur version is made from fermented apricots and their kernels. Fruit is sourced from Europe, United States and Australia. Other natural fruit flavours and spices are added to produce a full flavoured, balanced product.
Apricot Brandy, Peach Brandy etc. are all names for sweet liqueurs made from their respective fruits but often made in different ways. Indeed in modern times, fruit may not come into play at all – synthetic flavours and colourings may be partly or completely used to make satisfactory substitutes, however the quality of these products falls well short of their authentic fruit counterparts. Fruit Liqueurs are not made like brandies, however they may have an amount of brandy spirit added to them. (Strictly speaking, the word ‘brandy’ in relation to these products is a misnomer.) This version from Baitz has an alcohol level of 23.0%.
