This paper presents a summary of a study on the lowering of the methanol content in Eaux-de-vie de Fruits. It includes an overview of the methods, materials and important results. It is shown that methanol is a natural component of fruits that is already markedly present in the fruit at the advanced ripeness required for obtaining the maximum flavour quality of the distillate.
