“We have one peculiar customer in Russia that was introduced by Peter The Great – the “punishment” drink. If you are late for a party, you are punished by having to down a shot of vodka. Only if it was Peter’s party, it was a whole goblet. Sometimes people fainted because they simply could not take it.”

Although its origins remain unknown, it’s argued that this “bread-wine”, as it was initially called, appeared in Moscow in the 15th century, while the word “vodka” may have come from the word “voda”, which means water.
