NATIONAL VODKA DAY
National Vodka Day is observed annually on October 4th in the United States.
It is by the distillation of fermented substances such as grains, potatoes or sometimes fruits or sugar that vodka is made.
Traditionally prepared vodkas had an alcoholic content of percent by volume. In the United States, products sold as vodka must have an alcoholic content of 30 percent or more.

Vodka makers have expanded the variety of flavors making endless possibilities when it comes to cocktails, mixed drinks, and other beverages the whole year round.
