Vodka is produced from alcohol of agricultural origin, a high strength distillate (sometimes referred to as ‘neutral’ alcohol) which can be made from any agricultural raw material and must be distilled at a minimum of 96% vol.. The agricultural raw materials have to be fermented using yeast and distilled so that their organoleptic characteristics, and those of any by-products from the fermentation process, are selectively reduced.
The alcohol used to make vodka must meet strict analytical parameters, including a maximum methanol level of 0.1g per litre of pure alcohol. The spirit can be re-distilled and / or rectified and can be treated with processing aids, including with activated charcoal, so as to give the spirit special organoleptic characteristics.
When vodka is made from agricultural raw materials other than cereals or potatoes, these must be stipulated on the label.
Vodka sold to consumers has a minimum alcoholic strength of 37.5% vol..

- The addition of sugar will be limited to 8g per litre of vodka.
