"It seems that the preparation of aqua vitæ, the "water of life" was a fairly popular "experiment" among European alchemists."
Libatius Borage, Advanced Potion-Making[src]

Aqua Vitæ (also spelt Aquavitæ) is a term used to refer to distillates of alcoholic beverages.[1] The creation of Aqua Vitæ was a common alchemic experiment among European alchemists in the Middle Ages.[2]

Aqua Vitæ was a known component of Belch Powder;[3] 3 gallons of the distillate was a required ingredient.[4]
