The base ingredient used to make vodka will have a subtle effect on the final product. Rye might add an oily texture and spice, while barley might be mild and light. Potatoes can add a creamy feel. To begin production, the base is mixed with water into a mash, and cooked. Whole grains and potatoes require the addition of enzymes to convert the starches into sugar, while malted grains contain their own enzymes.
After a quick fermentation of about two days, the liquid is typically poured into a column still for distillation. Producers put vodka through multiple distillations, as many as seven, in pursuit of a clean, pure spirit. Once distilled, vodka is “neutral” at 190 proof (95 percent alcohol by volume). The vodka may also be filtered through charcoal or other materials. Producers then add water to achieve the desired body and reduce the proof.
Water is crucial for distillers. They often look for the purest of the pure, and they’ll go to great lengths to filter, soften or otherwise purify their water. However, even with multiple distillations, the purest water and the near absence of congeners, some oils and sugars remain in the spirit after distilling. Whether the water is distilled or sourced from a natural spring, it will impart subtle flavors and aromas, which often become the defining characteristics of a brand.
