New course: Vodka basics with Monique Farah

Posted by Emily Tatti on Jul 26, 2017 1:59:00 PM

Vodka is the most consumed spirit in the world – but sadly, it’s also the most misunderstood.

Some dismiss it for tasting like rubbing alcohol, while others will say it doesn’t have any unique characteristics on its own. That couldn’t be further from the truth – and by the time you’ve finished this course, you will have a brand new appreciation for this timeless spirit.
