A sweet 15% black currant wine fortified with 170 proof brandy to 18 1/2% Alcohol and back sweetened with pure juice for a smooth finish. Black currants are one of northern Europe's and Scandinavia's favorite fruits, but they are rarely grown here in the United States with the exception of here at Sand Hill Berries. This brandy is tannin-rich, with great potential for aging. Black currants are one of the only fruits that rival grapes in complexity of flavonoids and anthocyanins, in addition to being one of the fruits highest in Vitamin C and anti-oxidants.
