Debunking Vodka Myths
Food & Drink
> Wine & Spirits
Myth 1: It doesn't matter which vodka you use in your cocktail
Vodka is a rectified spirit with simple soft taste. Vodka, which contains higher proof of alcohol, will bring out a different taste as compared to vodka with lower proof. Little known fact is that most taste and smell neutral vodkas make the best cocktails.
Myth 2: All Vodkas are not the same
Vodka by definition is a neutral spirit without any distinct character. Not quite true! The taste greatly varies depending on where they are distilled. The difference in taste of vodka also results from the quality and type of the raw material used, the distillation technique and the quality of the bottling. For instance, traditional vodka from Eastern Europe is assertive and robust and infused with a great flavor as opposed to vodka produced in America where it has a neutral taste.
Myth 3: Vodka is odorless and tasteless
Of course, different vodkas have different tastes and odors. Some are very light while some vodka brands are known for their oily character. Vodka gains its character from the grain source used to make the initial spirit and from the distillation process. One can grade different vodka on the following four parameters- fragrance, flavour, feel and finish of the liquid, simply stated as the Four Fs to describe vodka.
Myth 4: Vodka is made from only potatoes
Contrary to popular belief, very little vodka is made from potatoes. Vodka can be made from any starch- or sugar-rich plant matter or anything ranging from soybeans, grapes, rice, sugar beets and sometimes fruits or sugar. Every country or region prides itself in their special way of making vodka.
Myth 5: Vodka is a women's drink
Traditionally Vodka was considered to be a women's drink. But today vodka is seen as a cool, hip and to-be-aspired-for drink by both men and women.
