This might more appropriately be called “instant Slivovitz” as it uses microwave technology to cook the sugar and fruit, rather than letting the alcohol extract the flavors.

Our plum brandy is also unusual in that it has gin as the base liquor. It’s worth a try but we make no promises that you will like it.
