Is schnapps and vodka the same thing?

European schnapps, aka true schnapps, is comparable to a lightly flavored vodka. In order to make schnapps, fruit juice is fermented with a base liquor (it's basically a fruit brandy). Schnapps should have an alcohol content of 32%, which translates to 64 proof.
