Eau-de-vie

From A Storehouse of Knowledge
Jump to: navigation, search

Eau-de-vie (plural eaux-de-vie) in French literally means "water of life," the same as the Latin Aqua Vitae and the Scottish Gaelic uisge beatha, the source of the English word whiskey. In French it simply means distilled spirits, but in English it has come to refer specifically to brandy made from fruits other than grapes, especially if unaged. Examples include Calvados, kirsch, and slivovitz.
