Versatile with a quintessential apricot taste, DeKuyper® Apricot Flavored Brandy is essential for classic and modern cocktails. Made with premium apricot distillate blended with crushed fruit kernels and quality brandy, this fine apricot brandy is the essence of summer. Considered an aphrodisiac in Europe for centuries, the apricot's luscious curves, juicy flesh and sweet taste led people to believe that eating dried apricots or prunes unleashed the powers of love. Perfect sipping on its own, its fruity flavor shines through in an Apricot Caipirinha, or mingled with fresh lime and orange juice and soda for a refreshing Apricot Fizz.View all products by DeKuyperCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

The brandy industry does not subscribe to many strict standards, though some brandies rely on only fruit for their characteristic sweetness — most commonly grapes, apples, cherries and peaches — whereas others may employ additional sweeteners. In general, a sip of brandy starts with a strong alcoholic flavor followed by a mellow, fruity dessert-wine sweetness alongside notes of oak and vanilla from the aging process.
Brandy-makers can experiment with any number of fermented fruits as their base, but the most common brandy flavors include peach, apricot, cherry, plum, pear and apple — some popular U.S. brands, specifically Paul Masson, produce a line of brandies with trendy fruit flavors like pineapples, mango and red berry.
Brandy flavoring is similar to vanilla extract in that a small amount goes a long way in a recipe depending on the quality of your product; look for natural and plant-based flavorings that create the signature oak and caramel notes of aged, high-quality brandy.
