You can use both wild and cultivated berries when you make this schnapps.
Cultivated berries are just as strong-flavoured as the wild ones.
Just remember to pick or buy the berries when they are big, juicy and most ripe.
Pick also a couple of young, fresh black currant leaves and add them to the vodka.
The leaves will enhance the wonderful berry flavours.
You can serve your black currant schnapps after it has settled for a couple of days. Or you can store (age) it up to a couple of years in a dark place at room temperature before serving.

Serve your black currant schnapps at room temperature in suitable glasses. And remember to keep your schnapps bottle tightly closed and in a dark place before and between servings.
