VODKA is a distilled beverage which is produced by mixing rectified ethanol and specially purified water. Therefore, vodka is composed primarily of water and rectified spirit.
RECTIFIED SPIRIT is highly concentrated ethanol which has been purified by means of repeated distillation, a process that is called rectification. It typically contains 96% alcohol by volume.
Belarusian alcoholic beverage manufacturers use "Lux" spirit forvodka production, which is considered one of the purest spirit types. The spirit is distilled from locally grown high quality grain. The quality of spirit is then approved by specialists, who run physical and chemical tests and degustations.
The water used by Belarusian producers comes from own artesian wells and is softened and purified in a multi-stage process, including reverse osmosis.
