Answer: 
A rectified spirit or rectified alcohol is highly concentrated ethanol which has been purified by means of repeated distillation, a process that is called rectification. Rectified spirits are used in mixed drinks, in the production of liqueurs, for medicinal purposes, and as a household solvent.
