All About Vodka

Vodka is the surprise package of the 20th Century. From an unknown Russian drink to the most widely used cocktail drink, it has been quite a journey.

History Of Vodka

The exact history of vodka is not known. However, it has its origins in a grain growing region around what we know today as Poland, Western Russia and Ukraine. The word 'vodka' is derived from the Russian word 'voda', which means water. Experts believe that the first record of vodka was found somewhere around the 9th Century. However, the first known distillery is around 200 years after that, around the 11th Century, in Khylnovsk, Russia.

The early process of distillation of vodka was crude. Due to the limitations in technology of the period, many impurities would remain behind and cause an unpleasant and unwanted taste. The early distillers would mask this by adding flavours to the vodka: The most common among them being absinthe, anisette, juniper, mint, pepper and peppermint.

The Bolshevik Revolution, banned all private distilleries in Russia. Many of the master distillers fled from the country: One of them being the son of Master Distiller Smirnov. Vladimir Smirnov fled to France to setup his distillery. Here he made contact with an American businessman and created the Smirnoff (the French version of his family name) brand. Vodka was publicized as a 'white whiskey' that left you 'breathless' (it did not leave one with an alcohol breath). But, vodka found its place only in the 1950s and 'swinging 60s'. The affluent youth and numerous cocktails, for which vodka's odourless and tasteless characteristics make it a perfect component, led to the Vodka revolution. And Vodka surpassed Bourbon (American whiskey) as the largest selling hard liquor.

Production Of Vodka

Vodka has traditionally been prepared with the cheapest grain available at hand. Vodka is mainly made from starch. However certain Polish vodkas are based on potato. Even molasses is used sometimes. Vodka is basically pure alcohol (ethanol) and water. It is extremely similar to whiskey. Both are produced from fermented mash. However, Vodka is distilled off at a very high proof. Thus, by distilling vodka off at 190 proof, most of the flavour is lost and almost only alcohol and water are left behind. Thus, the best vodka is tasteless, colourless and odourless.

Brands

Some of the most popular and good quality vodka brands are Smirnoff, Grey Goose and Absolut. However, blind tastes often confirm, that most of us cannot discern between the different brands of vodka. This is natural and desired, as vodka is supposed to be tasteless as well as odourless. Hence, the brand of vodka, is a personal preference. It is suggested to use any 'house' brand while using vodka in mixed drinks.

Vodkas also come in a variety of flavours. Brands like Absolut and Smirnoff have an arsenal of flavoured vodkas. Some of the popular flavours include raspberry, citrus, orange, vanilla and pepper.

The History of Tequila

Tequila is undoubtedly the national drink of Mexico. The history of the beginnings of tequila is a symbol of a rich heritage that dates back 900 years. The ancient Aztecs used a variation of tequila that was consumed during religious ceremonies and celebrations. Further variations of tequila have been produced in central Mexico over hundreds of years.

The source of tequila is the agave plant. It is a member of the lily family and has long spiky leaves and a pineapple like center (often referred to as the piña). The pulp from the center is used in the production of various fermented spirits. Aztecs made a sweet beverage from the center of the agave plant that made a libation that they called Pulpe (named from the pulp made from the agave plant). This drink is believed to be the first fermented drink in North America. Archeologist s and historians have found evidence that the agave plant was used by ancient peoples, and had been cultivated in Mexico for thousands of years.

Tequila was initially produced sometime in the 16th century in central Mexico. When the Spanish arrived in 1521, and ran out of their brandy, they utilized the agave and distilled the first agave plant drink. This laid the foundation for modern tequila making.

Modern day tequila was first mass-produced in the 1800's in Guadalajara, Mexico.
1800 Tequila is promoted these days in celebration of the year that aged tequila was produced.

In 1873, the first load of tequila was imported to the United States to El Paso, Texas. One hundred years later, case sales topped one million in the U.S. alone. Today, studies by Research International find that revenue from U.S. tequila sales last year rose by 11% to $1.06 billion, according to figures from the Distilled Spirits Council. More tellingly, while overall sales by volume were up by 20.6% for the last two years, sales of high-end premium brands have grown by a whopping 51% in the same period.

Tequila aficionados are buying and collecting premium brand tequilas in the same way people buy and collect single malt scotches. The Tequila connoisseurs of today will spend upwards of 100 dollars U.S. for a single bottle of tequila. America's perception of tequila is changing as the popularity of this spirit continues to grow. No longer is tequila relegated to drunken nights or Mexican restaurants. The demand for premium tequila will continue to grow as consumers become more educated about this historic beverage that was the first spirit made in North America.
