Eau de Vie

Eau de Vie is French for "water of life" and refers to a wide variety of fruit-based distilled beverages. The production process is similar to that of most other spirits; the ingredients are harvested, crushed and fermented, and the resulting must is distilled in order to separate impurities from the alcohol. Grape-based Eaux de Vie are normally labelled as brandies (but these have an amber colour due to the ageing process). Liquids such as Eau-de-Vie de Marc de Bourgogne, Eau-de-Vie de Vin de Bourgogne and Marc d'Alsace have not been aged in barrel are therefore colorless.
