The history of vodka is full of questions, myths and curiosities. Vodka has evolved over the centuries in terms of taste, quality, composition and production methods. The history of strong alcohol somewhat similar to what we know today as vodka did not begin in Poland. According to official knowledge, the first distillation of alcohol in Europe was made around 400 CE. the Greek alchemist Zosimos of Panapolis, and later in the records of Arab alchemists, there were references to strong alcohol obtained from the distillation of wine or fermented malt, which was supposed to have magical properties. By the 8th century, the Greeks were already drinking “grain-burning water”, and Raymond Lulle called vodka “the quintessential” and obtained it by distillation “by means of the heat released from the horse dung into a heap”. Such strong alcohol, defined by monks and alchemists from the Latin aqua vitae (water of life) or more familiar spirit, was used as a medicine or cosmetic. Until the 16th century, it was sold in pharmacies.

Perhaps the first liquor resembling later vodkas was created by the Chinese. According to some historical sources, strong alcohol from rice and sugar was distilled several hundred years before our era. However, this cannot be confirmed in any way. Who was the first to start producing vodka on a larger scale as a drink, not an alchemical drug? This is also a question for which there is no clear answer. Some historians claim that vodka was first produced on a larger scale by Poles in the 14th century as a grain distillate. Others believe that the Russians first produced vodka in the 16th century, as a product of distilling grapes or honey, and were the first to launch its manufacture. Still others attribute the invention of drinking vodka to the Swedes, who in the 17th century began to produce strong alcohol from rye. All these theories are supported by various arguments and evidence, but none is conclusively confirmed. However, one thing is certain – vodka was invented by people who were looking for a way to obtain a high-proof alcoholic beverage from available raw materials.
