Absolut Vodka is one of the few Vodkas that are in fact not made from Potatoes.

Vodka: Primarily wheat, rye, or other grains. This presents better texture and clarity. Potato vodka is still common, though. Some prefer it for the difference in flavor.
Whiskey: Usually wheat, corn, rye, or barley. The Jack Daniels in the picture is Tennessee whiskey which, like bourbon and white whiskey (moonshine), is corn based. Most other whiskeys use some blend of rye, wheat, and barley. Canadian whiskey usually leans toward rye for flavor, while Irish whiskey leans toward barley for smoothness (I may have that backwards.) Scotch is a blend that is smoked over peat moss before the fermenting/distilling process occurs.
Tequila: Correct, it is blue agave that has been baked in a stone oven. Tequila is actually a type of mescal, which is made from any type of agave or maguey that has been pit smoked, and can be just as diverse as wine.
Rum: Can be made from either sugarcane or molasses. Different brands have their own proprietary spice blends (or are unspiced, like Bacardi) and aging methods, which can drastically change the flavor.
Sake: Correct, it's basically rice wine.
Absinthe: Made from a blend of different spaces and grain. Primarily anise and yes, wormwood. It is neither hallucinogenic or poisonous. You would die from alcohol poisoning before you were able to drink enough absinthe to be affected by the wormwood.
Gin: It's actually made very similar to wheat or rye vodka, but it is flavored in the fermenting process with juniper berries, which is why it smells and tastes like a pine forest.
Wine: Running short on comment space, will reply to myself...

Lol, scrub.

Also, I forgot sparkling wine, such as Champagne or Cremant. Basically just carbonated wine, usually white or rose, but there are some sparkling red wines.

kudos to you my alcoholic friend.

Thank you, sir. Have a shot for me.

Wine: Partially correct. Red wine does make much more use of the grape skins. You CAN make a white wine from red grapes (example: pino gris), but it is less common. There are also wines like rose and orange that make partial use of the skins to manipulate the fermenting process somewhere between red and white. You also have things like ice wine, made from grapes frozen on the vine, and straw wine, made from raisins. Not to mention fortified wines (wines with spirits, usually brandy, added to counteract the oxidization process) like port, sherry, or vermouth?

No love for other booze? What about aquavit, a wheat or potato based Scandinavian spirit flavored with anise during the fermenting process? Or plum wine (common in China)? Or hard cider/apfelwein? How can you leave out brandy, a spirit made from distilling wine? Or grain alcohol (like Everclear)? Of course, there's about a million types of cordials out there, and I'm not even going to TOUCH stuff like beer or malt drinks, just too many types to really get into... C'MON man! If you're gonna get hammered, get hammered like a SIR.

I'm honestly suprised the Irish didn't invent vodka I mean it's alcohol made from potatoes that's like the should be the most Irish thing ever but it's not

Potatoes grow best in the cold, so its no surprise that potatoes and therefore vodka flourished in Russia
User avatar #75 to #59 - vonspyder (01/24/2013) [-]
vodka can also be made from grain or even beets.
User avatar #90 to #56 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (01/24/2013) [-]
...maybe because there were no potatoes in Europe until about 15th-16th century...

Not all vodka is made from potatoes, most is made from wheat. Basically what vodka is is ethanol in water, which is why it is used to make gin.
Gin is made from pure alcohols (such as vodka), flavored with things like juniper berries.
Beer is barley, flavored with hops.

Wine is not made just from grapes, you can make it from any juice, because that's basically what it is, fermented fruit juice.
#65 to #51 - matriarch (01/24/2013) [-]
depends, if you are french wine is only with grapes
#44 - gtk (01/24/2013) [-]
The wine one is completely not true. Wine is made by smashing the grapes and letting the sugars become alcohol, they dont peel skin before this step. Its actually a simple answer why there is white wine really.

the wine one is wrong, it's exactly made how you would think it's made.
User avatar #17 to #13 - walkerassassin [OP](01/23/2013) [-]

Almost everyone here where I live has a vineyard, I've made wine myself a cople of years I know how it's made
User avatar #18 to #17 - walkerassassin [OP](01/23/2013) [-]
i mean as far as wine goes, not sure about the absolute vodka being one of the few not made from potatoes, but most vodka is. BOTANY
#26 to #13 - anon (01/23/2013) [-]
All of you are wrong, red wine is made from red grapes, and white wine is made from both red AND white grapes depending on the varietal and individual choice of the wine maker with how quickly the grapes get pressed, also you don't "peel" the red grapes you crush the juice out
#14 to #13 - anon (01/23/2013) [-]
Red wine is made with blue grapes and white wine is made from red and white grapes. The thickness of the skin is just a indicator of the quality and flavour. most of its sweetness is directly under the skin so for some winetypes it is necesary to have a thick skin (z.B. Riesling) .

Is everything in Asia made from rice?
#79 to #78 - urapooper (01/24/2013) [-]
idk probably I heard even some noodles are made of rice
User avatar #106 to #79 - jefglv (01/24/2013) [-]
It's where Asia gets the starch. Potatoes don't really grow well in Asia due to the tropical soil so rice provides pretty much everything.

Absinthe has a tiny amount of wormwood in it, it's not made from it. It's primarily flavored from anise seed extract, but the actual alcohol and fermentation process, before botanicals are added, is almost identical to Gin.

Rum is made from molasses. Molasses comes from sugarcane. Though theoretically you could use beets or grapes.

This is very, very incorrect.

Absolut is made from wheat. Smirnoff is made from potato. Jack Daniel's is made from corn.

I have a few bottles of rye whiskey
