Whether it's being distilled from potatoes, cereal grains or even grapes, one thing's for sure: Vodka is a smooth operator. This colorless spirit blends masterfully into a cocktail and stands on its own when taken neat.
Purity is the buzzword of the Vodka world. Multiple distillation, filtration and search for the purest water to use in the production of Vodka, all contribute to the neutral character of the “little water”. But even though the flavor is mostly removed from it, some is retained and influenced by the ingredients it’s made from. As the most neutral tasting Spirit, Vodka is less attractive for Flaviar-style tastings, but provides a bunch of possibilities for mixing it and creating flavored Vodkas.
Traditionally, Vodka has been popular in Russia and Poland. But unlike some other Spirits, Vodka production is not limited to a certain region and is now made all over the world - France and Sweden included -- and from a number of different agricultural products, such as grain, potatoes, beets...

There are three types of Vodkas: plain, flavored and fruit Vodkas.
Does Vodka have Flavor?
Multiple distillations make Vodka the “pure” Spirit, meaning it’s usually colourless, clear and pretty much the Spirit with the least distinctive flavor (not talking about flavored Vodkas here, of course).
How many calories does Vodka have?
A 1.5-ounce serving of plain, 80-proof (40 %) Vodka contains 96 calories.
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.
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.
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.
