Unsweetened, distilled, alcoholic beverages that have an alcohol content of at least 20% ABV are called spirits. Spirits are produced by the distillation of a fermented base product. Distilling concentrates the alcohol and eliminates some of the congeners. For the most common distilled beverages, such as whiskey and vodka, the alcohol content is around 40%.
Spirits can be added to wines to create fortified wines, such as port and sherry.

Famous quotes containing the word spirits:
“I thought of Chatterton, the marvellous boy,
The sleepless soul that perished in his pride;
Of him who walked in glory and in joy
Following his plough, along the mountain side:
By our own spirits are we deified:
We poets in our youth begin in gladness;
But thereof come in the end despondency and madness.”
—William Wordsworth (17701850)
“I have heard, but not believed, the spirits othe dead
May walk again.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“But seldom the laurel wreath is seen
Unmixed with pensive pansies dark;
Theres a light and a shadow on every man
Who at last attains his lifted mark
Nursing through night the ethereal spark.
Elate he never can be;
He feels that spirits which glad had hailed his worth,
Sleep in oblivion.The shark
Glides white through the phosphorus sea.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
