Cherry brandy is a rare occurrence in the regular offer of domestic brandy makers. The reason for this is a complex process of sorting quality fruits and the amount needed to get quality brandy. Cherry is also geographically limited fruit that fails to be present in all country areas, such as plum or vines.

Cherry is the fruits that are among the first to be born, right after late May frosts. Buds and beautiful flowers are the first ones to call spring. The quality of cherry is conditioned by weather conditions and quality treatment that trees get from farmer.

The distillation process is carried out within a defined period after the finished alcoholic fermentation, which may be delayed.
