Plum Brandy Liqueur Recipe – Faster Method

Plum Brandy, one of our personal favorites.


  • 2 lb Plums (Frozen)
  • 1 lb Demerara Sugar
  • 1 Bottle of good brandy


  1. Remove stalks from plums and wash well in cold water.
  2. Freeze the plums whole, this reduces the amount of straining required.
  3. Place plums into 1.5 ltr Kilner jar, layering them with a good covering of sugar as you go. Cover with brandy and seal.
  4. Shake each day until the sugar has dissolved. Leave for 3-4 months at room temperature. Strain and bottle, leave for a further month.

This recipe is quicker and produces a good tasting Liqueur.
