How are cassis liqueurs made?

To make cassis liqueurs, ripe black currants are picked and macerated in alcohol, usually brandy or vodka, along with sugar. During the maceration process, which can last several weeks, the flavors and aromas of the currants are transferred to the alcohol, creating an intense and fruity cassis liqueur.
