Subject:
Beverages , Alcoholic Beverages

Description:
This 2007 article provides an overview of European Union (EU) negotiations regarding the definition of vodka. The discussion "has pitted countries from the 'vodka belt' like Poland, Sweden, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia [who claim that vodka must be distilled from cereals or potatoes] against states that argue adding fruit does not affect the taste, therefore the product should carry the vodka label." Includes links to related material concerning the legislation. From the European Parliament.
