There are no set regulations governing the production of vodka. It is also often called a “neutral grain spirit” because of the way it is made. Across the board, the best quality vodka is produced by fermentation and distillation of grain.
The grain can be corn, rye, wheat or basically any type of grain the producer chooses to use. In Poland, potatoes are a very popular ingredient for vodka!

Some, like Absolut Vodka, is silky by nature with a hint of sweetness on the palette. Others, like the iconic Stolichnaya Premium Vodka, tastes really clean and watery. Both are likely in the top 10 vodka choices and is not wrong per se as each person has different preferences when it comes to taste.
However, the most common taste of vodka is that it is subtle and if you try different varieties, often enough, you will be able to pick up on the differences.
How strong is vodka, you may be wondering? Some people use the “heat” of vodka to describe the taste of it. This refers to the burn at the back of the throat or on the tongue when you drink it straight.
This heat is an indication of how smooth of a bottle you are drinking. The best rated vodka is usually determined by the heat, which is determined by the care a producer puts into creating a clean vodka.
The best vodka brands are generally smooth and subtle whereas less expensive brands tend to burn in the mouth and throat.
There are so many different ways you can drink vodka - straight, as a shot, in a martini, on the rocks, in cocktails and in every kind of flavour and style. It is up to your imagination. Browse our vodka page to find the best vodka that suits your mood today!
