Liquors have existed since the time of the Egyptians. Also the Greeks, the Chinese and the Arabs used in their culture the alcoholic drinks
A liquor is an alcoholic beverage that can be sweet or dry, and with different flavors.
Manufacture of Spirits
Historically, they are derived from medicinal herbs, usually prepared by monks, such as the Benedictines. The liqueurs were made in Italy from the 13th century.
Some liqueurs are prepared by infusing certain woods, fruits, or flowers, in water or alcohol, brandy, ethyl alcohol and adding sugar, etc. Others are made by distillation of aromatic agents.
Types of Spirits
The distinction between liquor and alcohol is not simple, especially since at present many alcoholic beverages are available with sweet flavors. However, flavored alcoholic beverages are not prepared by infusion. Alcohol content is not a distinctive feature; most liquors have fewer alcoholic degrees than alcoholic beverages, but some liquors may have up to 70 degrees.
