Making liqueur from your own wine or cider.

I came by a youtube movie where someone uses his own brewed wine to make liqueur..

The tekst is in dutch so forget that :)

But it is taking your fruit wine or cider
put this in a bucket and let it freeze
after 24 hours get out your lovely ice
get a salad dryer with a clean cloth in there
get your ice loose and put some in the salad dryer
give it a short spin
and you are left with just the alcoholic juice and ice that is basicly water
sweeten this down we want a sweet liqueur

Unfortunately the process of doing this is pretty much illegal in the UK. This will probably be the reason you haven't seen it on any forums bud :)

Yes its also illegal here in holland, yes we can grow, buy and smoke weed but we are not allowed to distill alcohol. But there is no heat involved in this proces :).. and if its illegal then delete the thread and probably will get an other nice proces or site i can share :)

I believe that freezing to make it is considered in the same bracket ;)

I had to give it a go ofcourse. So put 2 liters of cider in buckets in the freezer. they where all frozen this morning and i could make nice big ice crystals with a fork.

Got my salad dryer and a clean cloth and started spinning. I was left off with 2x 375ml bottles and probably one more but have to get an other bottle. I put in sweetner thats the same as 100 grams of sugar per bottle. Its 7.45 now so i wont have a taste now but will try some this afternoon :D

forgot to make pictures of the proces but if it is drinkable i will do an other batch and make some pics.

I could be wrong but I believe you are meant to use sugar rather than sweetener. Reason being the sugar makes the liqueur a liqueur by making it sticky and syrupy. I don't know if sweetener would have the same effect?

it does make it a bit more sirupy but not to much.. Still have some that did not fit in the bottles so will try and mix that with some sugar sirop.. Just sugar with a splash of hot water so it mixes up a bit.

just had a little taste and its a bit sticky and it has more alcohol and its sweet. But i dont quite know if i like the taste of realy sweet cider. It works but the next time I rather do it with some fruity WOW to get a different fruit flavor.
