Beverage from Distilled Fermented Liquids

Because natural fermentation can achieve only about 12 to 15% alcohol and in extreme cases like sake, 20% drinks of higher alcoholic content are achieved by concentrating alcohol through the process of distillation.

Whiskey includes rye, bourbon, Scotch, Irish, Canadian Pisco, and vodka, which are distilled from fermented grains. Rums (Cuba, Puerto Rico, Philippines, Jamaica, Barbados, Martinique, and New England) are distilled from sugarcane and molasses. Tequila is distilled from agave. Brandies are distilled from a variety of fermented fruit juices such as grape (cognac, Armagnac, and brandy), apple (calvados and apple jack), cherry (kirsch and cherry brandy), and plum (slivovitz and Micabelle). In addition, distillation with flavored compounds provide such drinks as gins, liqueurs, absinthe, aquavit, and bitters.
