Black Currant Wine
We believe there is an alchemy to making a fine fermented drink. First, sun, rain and soil work earthly magic to produce fruits full of possibilities. Then we handcraft our fruit wines by pressing, fermenting, and blending with apple brandy to bring forth the vital flavors of the fruit. We call these wines "fruit for grown-ups." Enjoy sipped, as a sweet complement to dessert or as dessert itself! Alcohol content 18.5%

Jameson Fink's Tasting Notes:
An apple brandy base gives strength while a black currant infusion adds sweet berry essence to this liqueur. If I was some kind of fancy mixologist, I’d like to think of ways to incorporate some of this into a finely-crafted cocktail. Any suggestions?
