Origins of Vodka
Vodka is a beverage that has existed for centuries, though its origins are highly debated. Some suggest it was created in Russia in the early 14th century, while others claim it was first produced in Poland in the 8th century.
What we do know is that vodka was used for medicinal purposes. It was believed to have healing properties and could be used to clean wounds and alleviate pain.
Depending on its origin, its production can vary. For instance, in Russia, vodka was traditionally made from grains like rye, wheat, and barley.
In Poland, vodka production was heavily regulated, and strict standards were applied to ensure its quality. Unlike the Russian version, Polish vodka was made from potatoes or grains and often flavored with herbs and spices like cinnamon, anise, or ginger.
Vodka gained popularity in the Western world during the 20th century thanks to its use in cocktails like the Bloody Mary or the Martini.
