Vodka is a funny old drink, sometimes it's a sensible and wise decision and sometimes having it is, well a bit foolish.
Mmmh, like drinking vodka after coming back from the pub last night and then for some inexplicable reason logging into dooyoo. Even more annoyingly, you can't delete your opinions, in dooyoo. So here I am in a post hangover period, trying to rewrite my opinion as I had some inane ramblings about vodka last night.
Well what can I say, as the thought of drinking vodka as this moment in time is making me feel slightly unwell. I was immune to its charms before going to Finland where the average person drinks about 8 bottles a year. Here the vodka flows a little too freely but then they have an excellent selection.
I recommend Finlandia which bottles an excellent selection of vodka's. There is obviously the standard vodka, then there is a range of flavoured vodkas which I particularly enjoy. They include Finlandia Lime, Lemon and Cranberry. Apparently they are made from pure glacier water and barley.
Finlandia can be quite pricey however, in certain locations in Finland. In duty free shops at airports, a litre bottle costs upwards of £20, though if you are flying to a non EU destination that price would at least halve. A half litre bottle of flavoured vodka would cost around £11 which is fairly pricey. The best place I have found to purchase Finlandia is on the ferry from Helsinki to Talinn. Here a litre of Finlandia retails for around £5.
Well I would tell you more about vodka but I think I need to go back to bed for a short while.....
