Russian vodka is the most famous and widespread alcoholic drink, the history of which dates back to the 15th century, but there is still no definite answer who was the first to prepare this strong, alcoholic and national Russian drink. Today there are several types of vodka: ordinary vodka (bread wine), special vodka and fruit vodka.
In Russia, ordinary vodka is a 40% solution of purified alcohol in water from fusel oil. Cleaning takes place hot or cold. The alcohol is diluted with water and then filtered through charcoal in several vats. This is done in order to get rid of a lot of fusel oil.
Special vodka is made with the addition of various essential oils and special aromatic substances, which are dissolved in ordinary vodka.
To make fruit vodka, crushed ripe berries are used, then juice is squeezed out, sugar is added and left to ferment. The fermentation process takes place with the addition of yeast. Then all this is sent for distillation.
