Cooking in the Archives has new/old recipe: "Chery Brandy" aka Cherry brandy. Unlike their previous recipe, fish custard, this one looks great. Essentially, the recipe makes a cherry infused brandy. Cherries can impart an extraordinary amount of flavor to alcohol in a short period of time. I make a rye whiskey spirit for holidays that mixes cherries, oranges, rock sugar, cloves, and cinnamon sticks for the holidays and the cherries can dominate the spirit if you add to many. The cherry brandy old-fashioned looks really good.
