Some Amazing Facts About VODKA!

Vodka is a high alcohol spirit made by distilling fermented grains, like rye and wheat, or sometimes even potatoes. Known since the 8th century, it has now become one of the most popular spirits, especially in countries of Northern and Eastern Europe.

Talking about how vodka was invented, Vodka was prepared by distillation of fermented potatoes or grains, though, at present, you can also find flavoured vodkas which contain sugar or fruits.

Water and ethanol are the significant components of this distilled beverage and that can be the reason why this drink is colourless.

Vodka is derived from a Slavic word ‘voda’, which means ‘water’. This kind of drink was originated in Poland. Usually, vodka is consumed chilled and neat (without water, ice or mixers), but, it can itself be an ideal mixer for cocktails.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the fascinating facts about vodka.
