Distilled spirits are alcoholic beverages that are manufactured by the distillation of grains, vegetables or fruits after they have gone through the fermentation process.

The term spirit is referred to distilled beverages that contain alcoholic content of at least 20% volume by volume. Beverages that contain 40% or more alcohol volume by volume have high flammability and will catch fire if heated to about 26 degree Celsius. This temperature is called flash point.
