slivovitz

slivovitz (sliwowitz) East European (originally Yugoslavian); distilled spirit made from fermented plums; similar to German quetsch and French mirabelle. Some of the stones are included with the fruit and produce a characteristic bitter flavour from the hydrocyanic acid (0.008% cyanide is present in the finished brandy).
