Eau de Vie

Translating to “water of life,” eau de vie (or eaux de vie, plural) is a French fruit brandy. This clear liqueur is made from fermented ripe fruits such as orchard-grown peaches, pears or raspberries then distilled and quickly bottled; it can be made from any fruit other than a grape. Eau de vie is typically not aged in wooden vats and is therefore clear in color. Eau de vie has a light fruity taste.
