Vodka is a clear distilled spirit composed primarily of water and ethanol which is generally made by distilling the liquid from sorghum, corn, rice, rye, wheat or potatoes, fruits and even just sugar. As with grain like corn vodka, you don’t have to worry about gluten. people who are allergic to gluten can have potato vodka. We generally think vodka tastes the same that is they are tasteless or tastes like thinner but the base ingredient used to make any spirit will necessarily affect the final product. Vodkas made from potatoes tend to have a heavier mouth-feel and aromatic profile than vodkas made from wheat.
Potato vodka also has antibacterial properties and it keeps the skin and hair healthy and it is gluten free, sugar free and also has a lower carbohydrate count. Potatoes can produce impurities during fermentation, so spirits made from the potatoes typically need to be distilled again and again. Potato vodka is most popular in Eastern Europe.
