    Yeah, Google bears no fruit.

    For a ten-spot though it’s probably worth a sample.

    Yes, I know

    Acetic acid is vinegar, and sodium bicarbonate is baking soda. Therefore, the purpose is to MAKE A MILK AND HONEY VODKA VOLCANO like in the science fair.

    And wasn’t it The Who who said, “Armenia / City in the Sky.”

      They’re ingredients but doubtful that it’s in the final product. It’s probably there for pH buffering purposes.

    There is a “Fire of Unknown Origin” which contains heavy amounts of Blue Oyster and lots of Buck Dharma!

    Distilling

    Sodium bicarbonate can be used in distilling to prevent the formation of ethyl acetate. My notes say 60 ml per liter of pure alcohol in the 2nd and 3rd distillation. The first run will produce about 65% alcohol, so you’d do the math from there. I’ve lost the URL, but it went into more chemical detail then I could understand.

    They may be making the vodka at least partially from whey – http://www.freepatentsonline.com/4086366.html
