This book, featuring premium and luxury vodkas and some additionally unique vodkas, is intended to tell a story related to the name of the vodka. Sobieski vodka for example, tells the story of Jan Sobieski for whom the vodka is named. Król vodka, meaning King's vodka in Polish, gives a brief account of some of the interesting kings of Poland. Zubrowka or Bison grass vodka tells the story of the production of this vodka. The book instructs the vodka drinker about each particular vodka. The book would also appeal to occasional vodka drinkers, or non-drinkers, as the stories provide insight into important moments in history or provide an account of an interesting aspect of a vodka. A book on vodka would be dreadfully boring if each vodka were described according to its smoothness, burn, aftertaste, etc. All would sound the same. It would be like using words to compare two beers - we could switch descriptions and no one would know the difference. Therefore, this book focuses on the story or legend associated with the name of a vodka accompanied by a brief note on its taste and characteristics. You the drinker can decide for yourself which is preferred. The book begins with the history of vodka and a description of how vodka is made. This book section ends with approaches to vodka tastings and run offs for the best vodkas in any single tasting group. A short chapter describes the step-up in blood alcohol levels with numbers of drinks as well as physiological effects of alcohol. We hope you enjoy the book, it is limited to descriptions and stories of ~30 vodkas. For anyone intending to start a vodka collection the book serves as a guide in buying gradually and towards your own unique vodka collection. Focus is on new vodkas.
