Vodka (Polishwódka [ˈvutka]Russian: водка [ˈvotkə]) is a clear distilled alcoholic beverage that originates from Poland and Russia. It is composed primarily of water and ethanol, but sometimes with traces of impurities and flavorings. Traditionally it is made by distilling the liquid from cereal grains or potatoes that have been fermented, though some modern brands use fruits or sugar as the base.

Since the 1890s, standard vodkas have been 40% alcohol by volume (ABV) (80 U.S. proof).[1][2] The European Union has established a minimum alcohol content of 37.5% for vodka.[3][4] Vodka in the United States must have a minimum alcohol content of 40%.[5]
