DIFFERENCE  BETWEEN WINE AND SPIRITS

Wine is made from fruit, and the juice, sometimes with added water and sugar, is fermented with yeast. The result is a drink that is alcoholic and usually between 8 and 14 per cent alcohol.

The most common fruit used in the production of wine is the grape, but a variety of other fruits are sometimes used. The process of wine production, known as winemaking, is as follows: fruits are crushed, releasing the juice. The juice is then fermented with yeast and then bottled to be drunk. There are three main types of wine: white wine, red wine, and rosé wine, 

Spirits, on the other hand, can be made using wine, grain or even just plain sugar. It’s also fermented, but is always the result of distilling the alcohol out of the ‘wine’, to give a higher percentage drink. Usually between 20 and 50 percent alcohol, although some, like Everclear,  are about 90 percent alcohol which is pretty much nearly pure alcohol.

 

In all cases, the alcohol produced is ethanol or ethyl alcohol (same thing).Wine is made from fruit, and the juice, sometimes with added water and sugar, is fermented with yeast. The result is a drink that is alcoholic and usually between 8 and 14 percent alcohol.
