      Traditionally in the Balkans and Eastern Europe plum brandy (similar
      to apple cider) is made from the pure fruit only, with no sugar or
      water added. Relying on wild yeasts, it ferments naturally for 5
      weeks. Alcohol content would be about 5%a.b.v. It is double distilled
      to 70%a.b.v. For this method you need lots of plums. I drank kosher
      Passover sliwowica (70%a.b.v.) in Poland and it tasted great. Had an
      amber tinge. Drank plum brandy from yellow Mirabelle plums in France
      and this tasted a bit mellower than from black prunes. This was a
      white distillate of 50%a.b.v. In the Balkans they steep whole plums
      or dried plums in the final distillate to increase the plum flavor
      and to give a bit of color.
