If you are looking for a brandy to add a little punch to any flaming dessert or adult-friendly fruit cup, Hiram Walker Kirschwasser Cherry Brandy 200ML is hard to pass up. Distilled from cherry wine, this is a Kirschwasser best used in recipes or as an addition to a meal that needs some additional fire.
While other brands typically positioned on a “higher shelf” can cost more than double the price of this cherry brandy, those types of Kirschwasser can be consumed as a digestif, mixed in hot drinks like cocoa, coffee and tea, or sipped neat following a heavy Bavarian meal. By comparison, Hiram Walker’s brand is better used as a key ingredient in alcohol-flavored cakes, candy or cheese fondue.
Sweet cherries are the key ingredient in the distilling of Kirschwasser. What kind of sweet cherries? The same kind often used in jams. During the mashing and fermentation process, the pits of the sweet cherries are also included in the mix, producing a distinctive almond scent.
Primarily made and consumed in the Black Forest region of Germany, Kirschwasser distilleries also pop up in certain areas of Switzerland.
