Vodka is a distilled spirit, made predominantly from water and ethanol; sometimes with traces of impurities and flavourings. Vodka is made by the distillation of fermented substances such as grains, potatoes, or sometimes fruits or sugar.
In recent years, exotic flavours have been added to it to produce the increasingly popular flavoured vodkas, which have exploded on to the market place.
Traditionally Vodka is an unflavoured spirit but despite this, many ‘Vodka-Belt’ and Nordic countries have been making flavoured Vodka for Centuries. Typical flavours include Vanilla, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Red Pepper, Honey, Leaves and other herbal variations. In Estonia, Vodka has been flavoured with blackcurrant, cherry, apple, lemon, and watermelon for many years. Owing to the surge in the alcopop industry in the past two decades, Vodka purveyors have spotted a gap in the market and proceeded to obtain a market share by creating an extensive range of flavoured vodkas from bubble-gum, coconut, mango to Chilli and wild tea.
Regardless of what flavours your taste buds crave – I am certain there is a flavoured Vodka out there that will tantalize them in stock at www.drinks.ng.
