Fruit Brandy

Fruit brandy, or eau-de-vie (eaux-de-vie in the plural; "water of life" in translation), is brandy made with any fruit apart from grapes. Most commonly, orchard fruits such as apples, pears, plums, cherries and blackberries are harvested, crushed and fermented, and the resulting must distilled twice. Most eaux-de-vie are bottled without ageing to preserve the integrity of the fruit character. These spirits are an important part of cultures in areas of Europe where production is most common and traditional.
