Vodka (Russian: водка, Polish: wódka, Ukrainian: горілка, horilka Czech: vodka, Slovak: vodka) is a distilled beverage and one of the world’s most popular liquors. It is composed primarily of water and ethanol with traces of impurities and flavorings.

Vodka is made from fermented substances like grain and potatoes.

Vodka’s alcoholic content usually ranges between 35-70% by volume; the standard Polish, Russian and Lithuanian vodkas are 40% alcohol by volume (80 proof).

According to The Penguin Book of Spirits and Liqueurs, “Its low level of fusel oils and congeners — impurities that flavour spirits but that can contribute to the after-effects of heavy consumption — led to its being considered among the ‘safer’ spirits, though not in terms of its powers of intoxication, which, depending on strength, may be considerable.”

Vodka may be distilled from any starch/sugar-rich plant matter; most vodka today is produced from grains such as sorghum, corn, rye or wheat. Among grain vodkas, rye and wheat vodkas are generally considered superior. Some vodkas are made from potatoes, molasses, soybeans, grapes, rice, sugar beets and sometimes even byproducts of oil refining or wood pulp processing.
