Hacking Vodka!

In case the title isn't self-explanatory, this fantastic article explains how to make great vodka out of cheap ones!

The short answer - just filter it! About six or seven times. Any regular water filter will do (They used Brita water filter)

These guys used Vladimir Vodka ($11.09 for 1.75 L) whereas what they compared it to was Ketel One ($11.99 for 350 ml!!). Just to confirm I checked one online retailer and Ketel One was listed at $37.05 for the one litre bottle!

And their conclusions? By the sixth filtration, they surpassed even Ketel One's refined taste.

Yes, the obvious questions follow, so read their answers to all the feedback!

Which got me wondering, can we do the same with regular cheap whiskey and turn it into Scotch?!!
