Aguardiente, the name literally meaning “firewater” is a clear, unaged spririt produced from fruit or grain. It’s a catch all category that can include anything from rum, to Brazilian caçacha, to grappa, to pisco, to arak. But countries also produce it as simply aguardiente. In Columbia, it’s considered the national drink, made from sugarcane and most often flavored with anise (like arak), and produced in different regions of the country under many brands. Similarly in Ecuador, aguardiente is largely sugarcane-based, but left unflavored, usually enjoyed in cocktails. In Spain, particularly in Galicia, there are high quality versions known as Aguardiente de Orujo (gold), also produced from grapes. In Portugal, aguardiente is often used to fortify wines like Port and Madeira. In the US, it was largely consumed during the Gold Rush of the mid-1800s, made from the then popular Mission grapes brought over from Spain and Mexico.  Read less
