We’ve got the spirit, the liquor, and the liqueur you’re looking for.

Why is alcohol called spirits? What is considered a spirit? And what’s the difference between liquor vs. spirits? These terms may be somewhat confusing and for most people they can be used interchangeably. However, there is a subtle difference and maybe only bartenders understand or care. But what do we mean by liquor? Liquor is defined as any non-brewed, distilled alcoholic beverage (so beer then, is not a liquor). A spirit is a specific liquor created to have special flavors, has no added sugar and has at least 20% ABV. It is called spirit because it is the product of the distillation of alcohol. The spirits you are probably most interested in are more commonly called brandy, gin, rum, tequila, vodka, and whiskey.

 

So what about liquor or liqueur? Well, all liqueurs are made from liquor. They are sweetened and often flavored with fruits, oils and extracts to give them a unique taste. Typically liqueurs are lower in alcohol content. Among the most popular liqueurs are Amaretto, Bailey’s, Kahlua, Sambuca, Fireball, and Jagermeister. If you are still confused by all the types of liquor, you can always ask the experts at Cox’s to recommend the liquor, liqueur or spirit that’s just right for you.

 

The bourbon state’s best bourbon… and beyond.

Kentucky is known for the world’s best bourbons and Cox’s is known for being the best place to find them. But that’s not all you’ll find here. Check out our huge selection of other premium liquor brands.
