"Is Vodka made from potatoes?" - Yes, it can be.
"Is Vodka made from wheat?" = Yes, that’s also an option.
"Is Vodka made from corn?" Yep, many Vodkas are corn-based too, especially the ones produced in the US.
We all know that repetition is the mother of learning, but also it’s not too exciting, so we’ll stop here with the Vodka, Vodka, Vodka questions and just get to the bottom line:
Unlike many other spirits, Vodka can be made anywhere in the world and pretty much of any ingredient that contains starch.
Potatoes and grains are the most common ones, but you’ll also find Vodka made from beet, sugar beet, sorghum, grapes and many other sources of starch.
The next burning question: Is Vodka Flavourless?
It might be quite difficult to tell the difference between two Vodkas used in a cocktail, but if you try them neat you’ll find that they have a flavour profile that all depends on what the Vodka is made from, on the characteristics of water used in its production and on the production process.
