Vodkas and spirits are unflavoured beverages made from agricultural raw materials, such as wheat, barley, rye and potatoes.
The taste of vodkas and spirits is often neutral and dry. The taste is affected by the main raw material and the flavours created during production.
Vodkas and spirits are very versatile and can be used in mixed drinks or served as shots.
Serve vodkas and spirits as shots at a crayfish party, at the Christmas table or with herring and Baltic herring dishes seasoned with vinegar. Vodkas and spirits are also used in many classic drinks, such as Cosmopolitan, Screwdriver and Bloody Mary.
As shots, vodkas and spirits are served chilled, at 4–6°C.
The alcohol content of vodka must be at least 37.5% by volume, whereas spirits can be milder.
