Kirschwasser (pronounced KIRSH-vahs-ər, German for “cherry water”, German pronunciation: [ˈkɪɐ̯ʃvasɐ]) is a clear, colourless fruit brandy traditionally made from double-distillation of morello cherries, a dark-coloured cultivar of the sour cherry. However, the beverage is now also made from other kinds of cherries.
The cherries are fermented complete (that is, including their stones).
Kirschwasser is often simply called Kirsch in both German- and English-speaking countries.
