Unlike whiskey or tequila, vodka can be distilled from, well, pretty much anything. In addition to more standard potato and wheat bases, vodkas made from corn, whey and even fruit can now be found on back bars and on store shelves. And, yes, they all taste different, which means they are all worth seeking out.
Even though vodka is often referred to as a “neutral” spirit, its base ingredient still impacts its flavor and texture.

Then there are ingredients like quinoa and whey, whose characteristics are likely more difficult to imagine in your liquor, but they play important roles, nonetheless.
