The exact origin of this precious distillate is not truly known, however because of avid confirmation from Russia and surprisingly Poland we can undoubtedly find the source there somewhere. The first mention of vodka can be found in the 14th century in Poland, but the Russians claim that they have been producing vodka since the 10th century. In Poland, in the 15 century, vodka was fundamentally used for medical purposes but in Tsarist Russia it was an important trade commodity and could not be omitted from social events, or a Russian household. For Russians vodka is without a doubt both soul and culture. By the 18 century vodka contained only 20 % alcohol, which is often compared to today’s 40% as very little.
A source of fermentable sugars is needed for the production of vodka, mostly corn or potatoes. It is interesting that Finnish vodka is produced primarily from barley, from rye for Swedish vodka and from potatoes for Polish vodka. And many say that the Russians can make vodka from almost anything.
