Raisin spirit / raisin brandy is produced by distilling fermented extracts from dried grapes of the ‘Corinth Black’ or ‘Moscatel of the Alexandria’ varieties. Distillation must take place at less than 94.5% vol. so that the distillate has an aroma and taste from the raw materials.
Raisin spirit / raisin brandy sold to consumers has a minimum alcoholic strength of 37.5% vol..
