Balkan 176 Vodka is a very strong vodka and should always be consumed diluted with mixers. It's best kept in the deep freeze compartment of your fridge and served ice cold, diluted. Balkan 176 Vodka is also an antiseptic. It's exceptionally pure and may be used in extremis for sterilising superficial cuts. Balkan 176 Vodka is only ever made in small hand-crafted distillation runs. It's made from the distillation of five cereals including rye, wheat, oats, corn and barley.
