The middle part of the distillation run which is kept as potable spirit for aging or immediate consumption. This fraction follows the heads and precedes the tails, and the range of the hearts varies greatly for each different type of distilled spirit and the methods or equipment used.

Also sometimes referred to as a spirit run, although this has taken on a new meaning in modern discussion.
