Anyone know what the difference is between the blue label Smirnoff vodka and the red label Smirnoff vodka? They both say they are triple distilled.

Blue Label is "Export Strength". It's basically stronger than Smirnoff Red.

abv (alcohol by volume) varies from country to country as Smirnoff Vodka you buy in the supermarket may not necessarily come from Russia, Smirnoff you buy in Britain is made in the UK, even the so called "Export Strength".

In the UK the ABV of Blue Smirnoff is 45%, and the ABV of Smirnoff Red is 37.5%.

Eitehr way, neither are as good as Stolichnaya which is cheaper, distilled in Russia and is a damn sight better than Smirnoff. Just my opinion.

Smirnoff Vodka sucks.... I prefer Absolut :drink: (Grey Goose is a close second)

According to the website (www.smirnoff.com) Smirnoff Blue is made by the unique Smirnoff distillation is distilled to a higher ABV/proof than Smirnoff Vodka.

Smirnoff Vodka (RED) is the worlds leading premium vodka. The unique Smirnoff vodka distillation process with 3 distillations, an 8 hour filtration process, and 47 quality control checks... delivers unrivaled smoothness.

And for the hell of it, Smirnoff Black - Is distilled in a copper pot still at a slow pace to allow natural flavors of the original grain spirit to be preserved. Then the vodka passes thru Siberian silver birch charcoal. The distinctive taste is best savored when served neat and frozen.

Now you know :wavey:

casadores, tequila??? Hummmm depends on what the bottle looks like. I once had some tasty vodka with the actual worm in the bottom and it was in a square like bottle... smaller bottle. I liked it :lick: I don't know the name of it thou... I was very underage, very drunk, and very out of my mind :p

I can drink the red Smirnoff ok, the blue is a bit too strong for me, but I think there is a black label Smirnoff thats even stronger.
