Hrenovuha (Ukrainian: Хріновуха, Russian: Хреновуха) is a type of strong alcoholic vodka, common in Ukraine and Russia. It has a bitter taste, being made from root horseradish, often with different spices, such as pepper peas and garlic. Hrenovuha can easily prepared at home.[1]

This practice is an ancient tradition. Peter I at the beginning of the 18th century issued a decree that every farmstead must produce vodka.[2][3][4]

The word "hrenovuha" refers to the common parlance and is not recorded in dictionaries.[5] Nevertheless, horseradish alcohol is served under this name in many restaurants.[6][7][8][9][10][11] The Moscow Plant " KIN " produces this beverage.[12]
