Liquor on Passover (Pesach)

A search of the 'Net shows many people with questions about hard liquor for Pesach, and few clearly sourced answers.  Some people may find these answers helpful.  (And some may not.)

La base pour le Calvados c'est uniquement le Cidre qui est produit par
brassage de Pommes à Cidre. 
J'espère avoir répondu à votre question.
