I hope your plum brandy is nicer than the plum brandy from Eastern Europe. Slivovitz is rank.

Oh, Goodo! Shame we can't taste it. I used to make cherry brandy in a similar manner to your plum brandy. Worked very well - might try again.
Yes, I've done cherry too, but cherries are pretty expensive, whereas the plums are free!
I have some frozen cherries in the freezer, makes it much cheaper.

My son in law is from rural Bulgaria, and home made wine and rakia (which I gather is a sort of fruit spirit) is normal. It's not bad, but terribly strong.
Interestingly, when I serve the plum brandy, people from around here sip it like a brandy or liqueur. Eastern European friends toss it back like shots!
