method

Within the wide universe of alcohol drinks, there are two big groups. In one of them, according to the production method, wine, beer and hard cider are included, since they are drinks made through fermentation. On the contrary, the second group is composed of spirits, that is to say, those alcohol drinks obtained through distillation, infusion, soaking or mixture. While drinks from the first group have a degree of alcohol ranging from 3º to 15º, the ones belonging to the second group have a degree of alcohol ranging from 25º to 60º.

In this Web site, we deal with spirits; among them, eau-de-vies and liqueurs are included. eau-de-vie is the alcohol drink obtained through distillation (of cereals, fruits, seeds, wines, herbs, cane and potatoes) and having high alcohol content (between 40º and 60º). The term comes from Latin, “aqua ardens”, meaning “water that burns”, due to its strong flavor. This name began to be used to name the alcohol obtained through distillation. Within this category, we can mention the following drinks:

On the other hand, liqueur is the alcohol drink obtained through infusion, soaking, mixture or distillation of fruits, herbs, almonds, eggs, chocolate and many other substances, having a considerable proportion of added sugar. Its degree of alcohol usually ranges from 25º to 40º. They are made of water and alcohol. They are sweet, soft and aromatic drinks made with a wide variety of flavors. They are usually drunk after dinner or used as dessert ingredients. The main difference between eau-de-vies and liqueurs is that the latter have more sugar. Besides, liqueurs have less degree of alcohol than eau-de-vies.
