Alcohol may have an influence on creativity but for  sure what doesn't make Shakespeare and Co  fall into oblivion was their great talent.(or we want to believe that!)

The best vodkas

 TAGS:Vodka is a type of distillate that can be spelled in different ways: Vodka, Wodka, Vodca,... What is out of any discussion is that it is one of the most universal alcohol types.

The origin of the vodka could also be a reason for discussions. It's not well known if it has polish or russian origins but the original word meant "water of life". From there the diminutive "vodca" which literally means "water". After that they added a "k", maybe for underlining its russian origin.

Vodka is an alcoholic beverage mixed with water. It was not produced through distillation but through fermentation of different products  as potatoes, rye, wheat and beet with water. After fermentation it was filtered in charcoal to separate the main water quantity and augment the alcohol content.
