Vodka is one of today’s most popular spirits, but do you know how it is created? Vodka begins with the fermentation of sugar or starch products such as sorghum, corn, or rice. This basically means that the sugar is fed to the yeast to produce alcohol. This step creates a product with only about sixteen percent alcohol by volume. To create a higher alcohol content, the vodka is then distilled, or heated in a container called a still. With its low boiling point, the evaporated alcohol can be collected, separating it from the water.
This process creates a vodka that is typically thirty to forty percent alcohol by volume making it the world’s most popular spirit. With its high alcohol volume, a little bit of vodka goes a long way! Browse our impressive selection today.
