Historically vodka is produced through the distillation of cereal grains such as wheat or barley that have been fermented and only provide limited flavours, but can be distilled from any starch or sugar rich plant such as potatoes. Today there extras like fruit or sugars to give variety and to attract new customers. Vodka Is traditionally drunk neat without water or ice, especially in its home countries such as Poland, Russia and Scandinavia, although today the new generation see vodka as the main ingredient for many a cocktail.

One could categorise vodka into four or five distinct groups: Russian vodka, Polish vodka, Scandinavian vodka and the Rest of the World and Britain. Alexander Hadleigh Wine Merchants, Southampton, Hampshire, UK specialise in marketing quality vodka from all of the above mentioned regions: Russian vodka, one of the most popular spirits in the UK and the rest of the world is traditionally made from grains such as corn, rye, wheat and sorghum.

Some well respected Russian vodka's would be: top of the range Beluga with one of the most sophisticated palates you will find, its clean and fresh on the initial taste with a long lasting luxury finish. Kauffman is another Luxury brand gives you everything. Stolichnaya is probably one of the world’s best known brands and provides a full range of different flavours and quality including the renown top of the range Stolichnaya Elite.

Polish people will argue strongly that Polish vodka's birth place is Poland and the best vodka is made in Poland. Quality is inbred in Polish vodka, pride and maintaining tradition are key words as well. Wyborowa a pure grain vodka supports this statement. Other well championed Polish vodka would include the cool and fresh Belvedere and the potato rich Chopin vodka.

Scandinavian vodka in general terms tend to be crisp and lighter when compared to Polish and Russian Vodka. Much Scandinavian vodka is made from wheat and winter wheat in particular which has a high starch content providing a superior and smoother tasting vodka. Some good examples being Finlandia a clean and fresh tasting wheat vodka. Purity organic vodka of Sweden is distilled in small batches from wheat and barley, definitively a favourite with serious vodka fans.

The rest of the world today is blessed with many producers making a huge variety of styles and flavours with most following the vodka methodology of either Poland, Russia or Scandinavia. Chase vodka of Herefordshire is a good illustration of a top quality potato vodka. Skky vodka of the USA is one of many good vodka producers of that country that distil many different flavours. 42 Below puts New Zealand on the vodka map with a high quality wheat based drink providing a satisfying firm, deep, spicy finish.
