King Henry

Vodka is an essential spirit distilled from grains such as sorghum, corn, rye or wheat. Among grain vodkas, rye and wheat vodkas are generally considered superior. Some vodka is made from potatoes, molasses, soybeans, grapes, rice, sugar beets and sometimes even byproducts of oil refining or wood pulp processing.

Vodka owes its popularity to its reputation as an alcoholic beverage that "leaves you breathless", as one ad put it — no smell of liquor remains detectable on the breath, and its neutral flavor allows it to be mixed into a wide variety of drinks.It is traditionally drunk neat in the vodka belt**  and is commonly used in cocktails  and mixed drinks.The purer the vodka, the better it blends with other aromas meaning  VODKA brings out the best in other tastes too.By law, vodka  cannot have a distinctive color, smell, or flavor. It is, in many ways, an essential spirit.
