Vodka can be made from almost anything, it seems like. Grains and potatoes are the most popular. I believe Grey Goose and Ciroc are both made from grains and Chopin is one of the most popular potato vodka.

Hope you enjoyed your vodka!

PsiGuyy, are you a position to try "Polar Ice" Vodka?

Seems you are a bit of a "purist" on the issue,...

Polar Ice is grain alcohol, triple distilled, cut to 40% by volume with honest to God "blue" glacial ice (I understand this is actually "mined" from icebergs adrift up near Labrador)...

"Blue ice", BTW, is frozen sea water that has had, over at least a millenia, all the "salts" leached from it...the Inuit use it as a "clear water" source, as the last time it was "liquid" was at least a thousand years ago, and "Coors" advertising aside, I cannot think of a water source much more "pure"...

"Cool" this in the deep freeze, and serve "straight up", no ice, no "mix", and I can't quite get where "vodka" can be made much better?

Would be glad of any reply, even if it means looking around for a website or vendor, reasonably local to you, that you could give this a "shot"...

I read that one of the Monopolowa vodkas isn't triple-distilled and is rather sweet. I've had no luck finding it here in Indiana. Anyone else have a vodka that is noticeably sweet out of the bottle?

I like Absolut, Stoli, Schmirnoff, and Skyy, but honestly, I'm more of a Margarita fan

Has anyone tried gray goose and pineapple juice. Easy and good for the summer. It's also good with grapefruit juice, if you like grapefruit juice.

I'm not really a vodka fan as far as the purists go. But I like Absolut Kurant or Mandarin with my Cosmo's and Absolut Citron in my Kamikaze's. I do like a vanilla or chocolate martini though.
