VODKA CAN BE MADE PRACTICALLY ANYWHERE, BUT IT WAS BORN IN EASTERN EUROPE.
It’s disputed whether vodka was first produced in Russia or Poland—there’s talk of vodka being produced in Russia in the 9th Century, and in Poland in the 8th Century, but these were both likely crude precursors. The first written recordin Poland was in the Sandomierz Court Registry in 1405, while Russia didn’t get “vodka” to paper until 1751. Chances are, some form of vodka distillation was going on in both countries for centuries. (Though yes, Russians do love their Vodka and so do the English!)
