Scholars debate the actual beginning of vodka and it has become a problematic and contentious issue due to little historical material available. According to some sources, the first production of vodka took place in the area of today's Russia in the late 9th century; however, some argue that it may have happend even earlier in Poland in the 8th century. One thing is for certain, Vodka has always been seen as a classic and pure drink. Also known as the "The Water of Life," Vodka is versatile; at once virtually tasteless and odorless. This tipple accounts for almost 20 to 25 percent of spirits sold today in North America, making it our most popular libation - a feat that occurred in the 1970s when it outpaced bourbon as America's favorite spirit.
