History of Vodka

The strength of the drink is brought down to the required level before bottling. It was distilled only from potatoes but today it is made from grain, mostly wheat, rye, and corn.

The origins of vodka can be traced back to 12th-century Russia and Poland where vodka was the generic term applied to any spirit.

One can’t make out the base from which it is distilled as it is completely congener-free. There are many types of vodka available. Some distillers flavor vodka with the addition of flavoring ingredients and are quite popular in the market. It is bottled with a single blade of Zubrówka grass.
