The earliest mention of vodka was in the 1400-somethings,
where vodka was a variation on the Slavic word “voda
which means “little water”.

Vodka in that time was distilled medicines or cosmetics
from fermented potato or grains.

About a century or more later vodka also became synonym
with gorzalka, the burning drink which was considered
to be “only for medicinal use” (of course).
