Vodka is distilled initially in column stills to around 96% ABV and then filtered, usually through charcoal, to remove impurities before blending to bottling strength. The aim of most distillers in producing vodka is to achieve a pure, colourless, odourless, liquid and in the process much of the flavour is stripped out. For some, the flavour of pure ethyl alcohol is unpleasant or disinteresting but lovers of this drink can often detect distinct differences in flavour and mouthfeel between brands. Flavoured vodkas have additional ingredients added that impart their individual flavour to the spirit.
What to expect
Don’t assume that those vodkas that have undergone multiple distillations will necessarily taste better – they will usually lack flavour. Vodkas from Eastern Europe are produced in a way that retains more flavour and character than some of the neutral, Western vodka brands.
