Fresh Oregon and Washington cherries are crushed, fermented, and distilled into clear, delicate Cherry Brandy, also known as Kirschwasser. In German, Kirschwasser translates to “cherry water”, and is an integral ingredient in Swiss fondue, Black Forest cake and tortes. We use dark, sweet table cherries, giving the spirit a soft aroma of vanilla and almond.
