The word vodka comes from the word water!
Nowadays, both in Russia and abroad, the word “vodka” is perceived as an independent concept, meaning “strong alcoholic drink”. However, it was not always so and in its current meaning it begins to be used somewhere in the middle of the IX century. The word “VODKA” comes from the word “VODA” wich means water in Russian and is a diminutive form of the latter.
