Ice flakes in vodka?

I recently picked up a bottle of Hammer & Sickle vodka for the coming break. I used some once or twice before I brought it home. I used it last night and it was fine. Today however when I poured a shot there were ice flakes in most of the bottle. The only thing I can think of is someone watered it down but I don't believe anyone here would do that.

Freezer going out? My friend froze his vodka when his fridge broke.

maybe you kept it real close to the engine/generator/whateveritis part of the freezer?

My cousin had a bottle of tequila that he only drank out of once, no one else took any and it had some ice flakes in it too.

dunno. google is your friend

Lol, I've never seen vodka freeze. I've seen beer explode in the freezer, but I've never seen hard alcohol freeze.

Ya same thing happens to mine I think. I wanna say that once you open the bottle and air gets into it that will happen because of humidity? Or at least that makes since to me.

It depends on the mixture of water and other additives and ethanol alcohol content. I think ethanol alcohol freezes at -100 or lower, but the higher the water content, the higher the freezing point. Solutions also freeze gradually, with ice particles forming as you lower in temperature.

two possible things i can think of.

the vodka is below 80 proof

after drinking some, there was space in the bottle for the water already present in the booze to freeze

is it 70 proof?
when I get flavored whiskey it will start to freeze in the back of my freezer. Unopened and everything.
