What is Vodka? To understand what vodka is, we need to first understand distillation. The basic idea of distillation is to take a beer or wine; something with an alcohol, and boil it until the ethanol turns into a steam vapor. In a pot still (the least efficient way of distilling) this vapor will travel up the still and once at the top cascades down a side pipe (line arm) this piping is then cooled by a cold water on the outside of the metal causing the vapor inside the pipe to condense back into alcohol.
