What’s in your glass? If you’re like more and more Americans it won’t be whisky or rye. Nor wine or beer.

It will be vodka.

Ever since James Bond asked for a vodka martini, the clear spirit has gone from strength to strength. And it has risen exponentially.

Of course, it’s reached a zenith with the four-figure bottle service for Grey Goose that is now such a money-maker at nightclubs along the Las Vegas Strip.
