Eau-de-VieMost often referring to clear, unaged brandy distilled from wine from any type of fruit. Some styles are macerated with skins after distillation which provide color.
"This cherry brandy from Willow Creek comes across as a little hot on the nose, with a pleasant fruitiness coming up from the background. Tart cherry and nutty almond flavors emerge on the palate along with a hint of vanilla. The restrained fruit and relatively higher alcohol content put this on the spicier side of eau de vie."
