vodka

(vŏd`kə), traditional spirituous drink of Russia, the Baltic states, and Poland; it is now consumed internationally. The best vodka is distilled from rye and barley malt, but the cheaper corn and potatoes are commonly employed. The high alcoholic strength of over 90% is generally diluted before marketing. A characteristic of vodka is that it has little or no distinctive odor or taste.

Vodka

 

a strong alcoholic beverage; a blend of rectified ethyl alcohol and water. Vodka (grain wine) was first produced in Russia in the late 14th century. It was made from rye, wheat, and barley. In producing vodka, a mixture of alcohol and water (sorting) is passed through activated charcoal and then filtered. Vodkas are manufactured with 40 percent, 50 percent, and 56 percent alcohol by volume. By adding herb, grain, root, and spice infusions to vodka, various liqueurs are produced. Other types of vodka are obtained from the distillation of fermented sweet liquids. Thus, grape vodka is produced from grape juice, and cherry vodka is derived from cherry juice.
