Ever wondered what is James Bond’s favourite drink? Yes, it is indeed Vodka - or a Vodka Martini, 'shaken not stirred'. Though there is a certain debate on its origin, it is an accepted fact that the best Vodka comes from the Eastern European regions, namely Russia and Poland. It contains 35%-50% alcohol by volume.

Vodka is a colourless and odourless drink, prepared usually from grains or potatoes. Though it is usually consumed ‘clear’ or by itself, vodka is the favourite component of many cocktails and is also a mixologist’s delight. Every party is incomplete today without a ‘Vodka Shot’ or the quintessential ‘Vodka Cocktails’, thus making it earn a certain niche and acceptance with the young today.

Vodka is produced in India by very few brands; hence this list includes mostly IMFL (Indian Made Foreign Liquor) and imported brands available in the market currently. This list of Top 10 Brands of Vodka in India is compiled on the basis of their prices. The prices may differ from one state to another depending upon the duty structure and the flavour variant. The imported brands, of course, have a higher price tag.
