It's not just any vodka. You can take it with lavender or citrus peel...or horseradish and chili, if you're feeling adventurous.
8 - Balkan 176 Vodka: 88%
This vodka is strong enough to drive anyone crazy, even our Russian friends! It's bottled by hand, then triple distilled in the Balkan mountains.

Arguably the most powerful vodka in the world, created by a Scotsman for the Chinese market, where 8 is considered a lucky number.

5 - Poteen: 90%
A strong Irish alcoholic drink... Scratch that. A very strong drink. Traditionally made with malted barley or potatoes, 'poteen' is one of the strongest drinks in the world. It was considered an illicit product in Ireland for several centuries.
4 - Bruichladdich Whiskey: 91%
A whiskey that draws its strength from a 16th century Scottish recipe and is made in the one and only distillery to have its own bottling line... Enough said!

2 - Spirytus Rektyfikowany: 96%
A 96% rectified Polish alcohol to drink in great moderation because it is potentially very dangerous... and doubles as a cleaning product.
1 - Cocoroco: 96%
A Bolivian drink made from cane sugar, Cocoroco is often smuggled into countries. In the border regions of Chile and Bolivia, people dilute it with soft drinks before drinking it. But it's also used as a solvent, or to clean wounds on the skin and disinfect surgical equipment.
