    Hello,

    I dont post often on here but...

    I like Vodka and was wondering what the members thought was the best Vodka available to buy in the UK was.

    Personally, I am thinking Grey Goose is the best at around 30 pounds a bottle but I'm open to suggestions. Also, does anyone know any shop/superstore that stocks Grey Goose locally to them?

    Also, I am travelling to wither Vegas or NYC soon and was wondering if the majority of bars in NYC have a decent Vodka Selection. I also like Whisky and would hope bars in the states have a decent selection :)

    Cheers

    Dave

    If I drink vodka, it's usually cheap as hell. Smirnoff, Red Square, Vladivar Classic, and Tamova Imperial.

    Anyone who buys expensive vodka is missing the point of drinking it. ;)

    What's with all the Vodka threads lately?

    I personally like Russky Standart. :)

    Cheap vodka is awful. No, scratch that - the cheap vodka we get in the UK is awful. Cheap Vodka from Eastern europe and the Baltics is normally very good.

    I was'nt aware of multiple Vodka threads, apologies if im breaking the rules..

    As far as cheap Vodka goes, i'm tried some at around 5-6 pounds a 70cl bottle and its been bad... but does get the job done... although that was when I was a bit skint!!!!!

    And belvedere is apparently nice, but if you want something extreme, try Balkin.

    I can safely say they generally have most normally available vodka brands. They almost all have Grey Goose, Absolut or Stoli.

    There's a place in Sheffield called Corporation and they do 50p vodka and mixers all night on Monday nights. Its near enough nail varnish remover but it does the job at minimal cost ;) Don't really care that it doesn't taste like quality vodka: because it isnt meant to be :p

    So true...lol

    Love vodka.

    Of the main big brands my favourite is absolute, find it most bareable. Though proper vodkas it has to be Grey Goose.

    I must admit though I don't often drink vodka properly so there's no need for me to splash out on Grey Goose and such :o

    EDIT - On a cheapo night I was mistook that "White Spirit drink" (whats the name of it???) as vodka and bought it for like £4 a bottle. :o Vile VILE stuff :p

    Did you use to shove crayons up your nose as a child?.......I only ask as you have obviously done something to your taste buds, either that or you mix it like 1 part vod to 100 red bull.
