Eau-de-Vie (Eaux-de-Vie in the plural) is French for "water of life" and refers to a wide variety of fruit-based distilled beverages. The production process for eaux-de-vie is very similar to that for most other spirits; the raw material is harvested, crushed and fermented, and the resulting must distilled in order to separate impurities from the alcohol. The resulting beverage is bottled at somewhere between 35 percent and 50 percent ABV. The fruits used to make eaux-de-vie are commonly orchard fruits such as apples, pears, plums, cherries and blackberries.
