The Melbourne Wine Store carries an eclectic range of the finest vodkas from reputable brands. From standard selections like Smirnoff and Absolut, through to high-end vodkas like Grey Goose and Belvedere; our collection caters for every budget and taste preference.
Some of the items featured here are best suited for mixing with flavoured sodas, while others (like Absolut Citron) already have their own distinct flavours best suited to specific cocktails. If you’d like advice and recommendations from our friendly team of professionals, please don’t hesitate to ask us.
Interesting facts about vodka
While most people assume that vodka hails from Russia, its origins can be traced as far back as the 8th Century in modern day Poland
Vodka has zero cholesterol, sodium, yeast, carbs or fat – it’s quite literally just ethanol and water
Most vodka uses grains like corn, rice or wheat; but the distillation process strips away all the gluten proteins, making vodka 100% gluten free
The world’s most expensive vodka (Leon Verres’ Billionaire Vodka) is distilled from pure wheat and crystal-clear water, and the filtration process involves flowing the water over diamonds. It comes in a bottle with a custom deep black faux fur and nearly 2000 diamonds set in gold… hence the AUD $5 million price tag
Vodka-based cocktails to make at home
The Moscow Mule and Cosmopolitan are two very popular vodka-based cocktails, which you can make at home with very few ingredients. Moscow Mules just need a decent ginger beer and a wedge of lime (or lime juice), while Cosmopolitans are made of Vodka Citron, Cointreau, cranberry juice and fresh lime juice.
