Vodkas Don’t All Taste the Same
On your numerous relapse’s with lady liquor you may think that most Vodka’s taste exactly the same but oh how wrong you would be. This simple, clean and clear devils juice is more complex than you think. You need look no further than the ingredients used during the distilling process t refine the flavours. For example, wheat vodkas are smooth and soft while rye produced vodkas are more hardy and lightly spiced.
Another common misconception with this drink is that the best tasting ones come from Russia. Whilst they and other European countries produce a phenomenal amount of great Vodka, our friends in the Southern hemisphere such as New Zealand and Australia don’t do to badly for themselves either.
How is this Alcohol Produced
The production origins of vodka use to stem mainly from the distilling and fermentation of potatoes and grain. But as it became more widely distributed the humble potato did not have the purity qualities of grain. Therefore the main distillation switch was made to cereal grains such as; rye, wheat, barley, and most commonly corn.

Bonus Mention – Whilst Vodka O don’t make the top ten list we thought that they at least deserve a mention purely because we believe they have a fantastic product and are one to keep an eye in the not too distant future. They have a stellar team at the helm and truly care about the product, its ingredients and where they are going to take the brand. Good Luck.
