Made with grapes from Champagne and aged in Cognac & Armagnac barrels, this is one unique French Vodka.

When the business-savvy Paul Berkmann got together with Jean-Luc Braud, a Spirits wizard formerly of the Rémy Cointreau Group, it was with a clear goal in mind. The two Frenchmen would create an all-natural Vodka ― premium, unique, and 100% French. There was to be no compromise when trying to achieve the perfect character and taste. Only the finest ingredients and artisanal distilling techniques would bring about the mighty fine Spirit they were after.

French Vodka is often distilled from grapes and Guillotine Heritage is not different in that regard. It's crafted with Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay grapes from Champagne. The grape marc is distilled in a 100-year-old distillery using traditional methods. Being an aged expression, the Spirit is then poured into barrels made of French oak from the Limousin region that used to hold Cognac & Armagnac, where it spends 6 months to a year. This results in a uniquely oaky, rich, warm, and sweet Vodka that's bottled at 95 proof ― slightly higher than the unaged counterpart.

Vodka can be made anywhere in the world and pretty much of any ingredient that contains starch.

For a potato-based Vodka, 12kg (26.5lbs) potatoes are needed to produce a single bottle.
The average life of a $50 bill in circulation is 55 months before it is replaced due to wear.
Unlike its boozy brethren Bourbon and Scotch, Vodka can be made anywhere in the world. But it’s Eastern Europe that gets the credit for its birth. Just don’t ask Russia and Poland to get to the bottom of it—both argue that they masterminded the Spirit first.
It looks like potato chips and flavored Vodka are two things where the producers unleash their imagination. Bubble gum, fresh cut grass, pumpkin pie, marshmallow, and coconut water hardly begin to describe the many flavors of Vodka.
You won't impress the bartender by ordering Vodka-soda, but it's a good choice if you want to avoid unecessary sugar intake and make sure you stay hydrated when consuming alcohol.
Seems that Vodka is a lightweight—quite literally. This clear Spirit actually weighs less than water. One liter of water weighs 1,000 grams, while the same amount of Vodka only clocks in at 953 grams.
