Prune liqueur has a great popularity in France and Eastern Europe. It makes an exceptional dessert sauce for ice cream or an addition to pork gravy (pork with prunes is a delectable combination).

In France they would use Armagnac rather than vodka or brandy, as those two flavors complement each other perfectly.
