The holidays are fast approaching and alcohol always goes hand in hand with celebrations. Vodka is probably one of the most used alcohols for consumption, but buying a couple of bottles of this high quality spirit is something that not many may afford. Vodka can be made from just about anything! Russians use potatoes, and in southeastern US it is made with grain often called “moon shine”. This distilled beverage is composed primarily of water and ethanol, sometimes with traces of impurities and flavorings. Vodka is combination of ketone and acetones, which are toxic. They exist in trace amounts and are the ultimate cause of hangovers. Product sold as “vodka” in the US must have a minimum alcohol content of 40%. You can improve “vodka by using a water filter and we will show you how.
Cheap Vodka? Improve It at Home With a Water Filter!
Distillers producing a high-price product are actually aging the vodka in an oak cask. However, there is a faster and cheaper way of obtaining quality vodka in the comfort of your own home. You will need the following:
- a coffee strainer
- a bottle or vessel
- activated carbon
- cheap vodka
The first step is to put a coffee strainer over a bottle or vessel (1) and put a good grade of activated carbon into the coffee strainer (2). The best carbon to use is coconut-based carbon and pre-acid washed (3) to get the impurities out of the carbon. You can find it at pet stores, aquarium supplies or purchase it directly from us.
Next, slowly pour the vodka over the carbon (4) and let it percolate through it and through the coffee strainer (5). This procedure will remove some of the off-taste that the cheap vodka has. Vodka should really have NO taste at all and hopefully, if you over-consume, you are not going to end up with a hangover. Why? Because ketone and acetone will be gone and you will end up with a very high quality vodka!
