Vodka Features and Reviews

While vodka is famous for being the national drink of eastern European countries such as Russia, Poland and Ukraine, this colorless distilled liquor is popular worldwide and essential for many cocktail recipes. Vodkas are typically made from grains like rye or wheat, but can also be crafted from beets, molasses, grapes or potatoes.

Combining nature and art, AO Vodka is distilled in Japan's Osumi peninsula
AO Vodka
AO is the Japanese word for blue, and is also poetically used to describe many shades of green. Thus, the rolling green hills of the paddy fields where Japanese rice is grown are also termed AO, giving this 100 percent Japanese rice vodka its name. Using a bamboo filtration process, the spirit's distinct rice character is preserved, offering a clean, crisp vodka with notes of roasted rice and vanilla.
