It’s similar to adding FA Brandy to fruit, but a much smoother effect. If you don't have FA Brandy, or if Brandy is too strong for you, Liquid Amber can make a fine substitute in recipes. It works well with apple, pear, pineapple, and other fruits. It supposedly gives a slightly fermented effect to the fruit. Maybe it would help some of those underripe fruit flavors. I haven't opened mine yet because I am having so much fun with FA Gin, VTA Vodka, FA Brandy, and all of my champagnes, esp. FW Pink!
