Vodka is usually associated with Eastern European countries like Russia but it is also one of the words favorite spirits. There are many misconceptions about this popular alcohol and we are going to clear up some of them right here!

Myth Buster #1 PRICE=QUALITY

When it comes to vodka, price isn’t really an accurate measure of quality. Go out there and taste as many vodkas in as many price ranges as you possibly can and make a more informed or drunk (sic) decision.

Myth Buster #2 VODKA IS MADE FROM POTATOES 

YES Vodka can be distilled from potatoes (Swedish Karlsson’s Gold Vodka) but NO they are not the only source. Vodka can be produced from a variety of ingredients ranging from fruits and even milk checkout our other post. Popular ingredients are corn, wheat and other grains.

Myth Buster #3 THE MORE THE DISTILLATIONS THE BETTER THE VODKA

This is generally not true as each company defines the exact constituents of a single distillation and every distillery is set up in a different way. There is also the risk of stripping all the ‘flavor’, aroma and character of the base ingredients if it is over-distilled. If this is done you will be left with pure alcohol!

Myth Buster #4 YOU DON’T NEED TO BUY GOOD VODKA FOR COCKTAILS

It takes a seasoned tongue to taste the difference in the final drink (that is the cocktail) but you will definitely feel it (the difference) the next day. Don’t go for the cheap and poorly distilled vodka

Myth Buster #5 ALL VODKA IS THE SAME

This is actually not true. Each spirit reflects where it came from and what it was made (read distilled) from. Vodkas from Eastern Europe are more potent than from other regions. The taste of a Vodka will depend on several factors like  maneuverer’s  preference and  ingredients  used.
