Ancient fruit cake recipe.

What's the oldest form of alcohol laden fruit cake out there and the best place to get dried and candied fruits? 

 

Thanks

For dried fruits to be used in baking special gifts, I'd prefer relying on Harry and Davids.  Candied fruits are widely available locally so I just pick them up at the local market.
