Where The Word Vodka Came From
Vodka comes from the Russian word for “water,” which is “Voda.” Poland likes to brag about how their Vodka is older than Russia’s Vodka, dating it back to the 8th century, where it went by different names such as “burnt wine” and “gorzalka.” Like most distilled liquors back then, Vodka was mainly used as a medicine. Vodka was also used as an ingredient in early European formulas of gunpowder.

VODA IS THE WORD FOR WATER, USED BY ALL SLAVIC COUNTRIES. INCUDING POLAND, UKRAINE, BIALIRUS AND RUSSIA.
THE K WAS ADDED LATER. POLAND LIKELY WAS THE FIRST TO DISTIL IT.
It is an error to attribute Voda as only a russian word. It is a slavic word!
Unless this is russian disinformation!
A lot of Russian propaganda here. Vodka was first distilled in Poland and 150years later imported by Russia as medicine. Please stick to facts.
