Distilled Spirits

Definition - What does Distilled Spirits mean?

Distilled spirits are alcoholic beverages that are obtained by distillation from wine or some other type of fermented fruit, or a plant juice from a starchy material. Its alcoholic content is higher than beer and wine. The production of distilled spirits is based upon the process of fermentation, which is the natural decomposition of carbohydrate containing materials. This occurs naturally whenever carbohydrates and yeast are available. The distillation process purifies and removes diluting agents.
