All Vodka comes out of the still as a clear, colorless spirit, but Vodka from a pot still, which is the same sort used for Cognac and Scotch whisky, will contain some of the aromatics, congeners, and flavor elements of the crop from which it was produced.
In the United States, domestic Vodkas are defined by U.S. government regulation as "neutral spirits, so distilled, or so treated after distillation with charcoal or other materials, as to be without distinctive character, aroma, taste or color." Because American Vodka is, by law, neutral in taste, there are only very subtle distinctions between brands.

 iMedia Connection: Absolut Access
The situation was complicated by the fact that ABSOLUT never had a CRM program before, and didn’t even have a database of names, according to Woodard, “ABSOLUT and Emerge had to build the program from the ground up.” One of their first steps was to break the program down into four distinct goals:
No other vodka, no other liquor -- and perhaps no other brand in the world --could invite its consumers to get behind the scenes and live the brand experience in quite the same way.
It was particularly challenging in this case because ABSOLUT ACCESS had to encourage various stakeholders within the company to commit and contribute to the program, obtain internal approvals from both the U.S. and Sweden and ensure agreement from external partners as well.
