Note is the difference between the Russian vodkas, and the rest of the world vodka drinks. Only in Russia the vodka is produced from “living water”, spring water and distilled, and the mixture is then purified several times. In all other countries the vodka is produced from distilled water.

The customs for drinking vodka drinks differ from place of consumption. In the Baltics and Eastern Europe, the drink is taken alone and without mixing, pouring into chilled glasses and often accompanied by food. In Western countries is mainly used in combination, although the rise of vodka called “premium” makes it increasingly more often consumes vodka alone. Originally this beverage production was achieved after local agricultural products cheaper and more abundant, such as wheat, corn, potatoes, or combinations of any of these.
The process consisted of a simple and rapid filtration of the fermentation of these using a filter based on charcoal rather than an expensive and lengthy process of distillation. Purified liquid was then reduced without stale, to be stabilized by adding distilled water and then bottled. The result of this development cycle is a colorless and odorless with high alcohol content.
