Svedka // Sweden
Svedka--a mashed up word taking "svenska" meaning "Swedish" and vodka--was first introduced in 1998. It is column-distilled from Swedish winter wheat. Svedka is now owned by Constellation Brands based in the US.
Unflavored VodkaDistilled from any agricultural product, most commonly grains or potatoes. Typically distilled to 95% ABV. Water is added to bring the spirit down to as low as 37.5% ABV in the EU and 40% ABV in the US. It is usually filtered, often with charcoal, prior to bottling. It is almost always clear and unaged.
"Not too much aromatically going on aside from the fumy alcohol notes. A touch sweet as you taste, the peppery/alcohol bite comes quickly on the thin body. Bitter on the finish. Not one to sip neat. Put it to work in a punch if you must."
