Let’s get started creating most awesome tasting Quince Liqueur on earth.

Karinshu Quince Liqueur,

Not Just for your Grandpa, and occasionally Grandma,

Now, let’s begin, make sure the Kitchen will be completely available for the time that you will need it for. If your going to make it in the morning wake up earlier, than the earliest family member does, and guess what, surprise the kitchen will be available.

If you are making Quince Liqueur , at night , that would mean mom or anyone else, has no plans on using the kitchen. I always just make sure supper was already cooked, and the kitchen is available for the rest of the evening. After all if you would like to do this again don’t start up with mom.

If you are mom, and plan on making this recipe by yourself, I hope your kids know you are the coolest mom on earth, kudos to you.

Now that the kitchen is available make sure that it is clean, no clutter or anything else on the counter, or tables.

You should remove all the ingredients, and utensils, that you will need from the cabinets, pantry, and draws, ahead of time. Then place, all the ingredients in an area you do not plan on using throughout the mixing process. Double check to make sure you have all the ingredients before you start.

What you’ll need for Karinshu Quince Liqueur Recipe

  • 2 average quince’s or 8 oz
  • 2 cups of vodka or 35% shochu ‘white liquor’
  • 1/3 cup of sugar

Directions, for Quince Liqueur Recipe

  • Wash Quince with hot water and wipe well on dry towel.
  • Cut fruit into slices 1cm in thickness. Do not discard seeds, they are nutritious and will add flavor.
  • Layer Quince slices and sugar into glass container
  • Pour in  vodka the or shochu into container and seal.
  • Store in a cool dry place, agitate about once a week.
  • Ready to drink after 2 months, though you ccan age it till 6 months, after which you should remove Quince fruit.
  • For best tast allow to age for another 6 months.

Add sugar to taste.

Recipe Notes:

Rice shochu (komejochu) is recommended, mugi (wheat) or imo (sweet potato) have too strong a taste. Vodka is an acceptable substitute.

Normal shochu for drinking is 25% alcohol, 35% is required for making Japanese style liqueur because after steeping the alcohol content must be around 15% to prevent spoilage.


I am listing the simplest utensils that you can use, the ones mom should have already have in the kitchen.
– A large glass jar (I used a 3 liter jar) 
 large plastic bowl
– measuring cups (liquid and dry)
– metal strainer
– cheesecloth
– saucepan
– small funnel
– glass bottles, or storage containers, for the final product, you can either use the glass Jar you used before, or just buy a second one. 

Notes on Utensils:

Avoid plastic as much as possible when working with strong alcohol. Glass is always preferable.

Filteing and Drinking your Liqueur

After the steeping time is over. Carefully strain the liquid through several layers of cheesecloth. It helps to moisten the cheesecloth first so the liquid permeates more smoothly.

Once you get to the point of straining out the pulp and rind, gently wring the cheesecloth to extract all of the liquid and juice.

If you still need to you can strain your Quince liqueur one more time through a coffee strainer. When you are done straining, you can discard all of the rind, pulp and any spices.

Return the liquid to the jar, for best taste let your AQuince Liqueur age for another month in a cool dry place.

Congratulations, you have made this awesome Liqueur recipe,

You now need a bottle, and a label, that is cool enough to compliment your hard work. Honestly if it looks good people will rave about it. If you put it into a cheap bottle people will make fun of you.
