Distilled spirit refers to ethanol that is produced by heating fermented products, such as wine or mash, and then condensing the resulting vapor. It is also knows as liquor.

Sometimes referred to as liquor or hard liquor. The term hard liquor is misleading in that it implies that the product is more intoxicating or potent than beer or wine. In reality, a bottle or can of beer, a five-ounce glass of dinner wine, and a shot of distilled spirits (gin, vodka, etc.) each contains an equivalent amount of alcohol.
