WHAT IS VODKA?
In Russian, vodka means “little water”.
Vodka is a neutral, ultra purified alcohol distilled from most commonly potatoes, grain, wheat or rye. A basic mash is made from the grains and then upon fermentation, the potion is repeatedly distilled to the desired consistency, flavor and proof (vodka is typically 80, 90, or 100 proof). The vodka is then filtered through charcoal to create its clean, flavorless end character.
Originally, distilled in Russia, Poland and the Baltic states, Vodka is now produced all over the world.
