VODA means water for life. Here at the magazine, our water for life has a multitude of meanings, and to celebrate National Vodka Day today, October 4th, we’re going with the Russian translation of voda, which means vodka. Nothing but the best will do so we’ve chosen to celebrate with Ultimat Vodka. It is contained in a beautiful, cobalt blue decanter too stunning to hide away in a liquor cabinet. We keep ours on full display. The luxury glassware line, Riedel, has crafted custom vodka snifters in which to enjoy this fine spirit.  It’s made from a trifecta of potato, wheat, and rye in Poland, exquisitely distilled and filtered for a vodka that not only looks pretty, but tastes superlative.  We decided to keep it simple this National Vodka Day and enjoy ours on the rocks with a simple lemon twist.
