Nobody knows. Unlike other beverages, a bottle of Smirnoff Ice doesn’t list the ingredients, and the official website doesn’t provide any additional data neither.
It was my understanding that food labels are required to list all ingredients, in order of decreasing weight. (See the label on an Almaza bottle below)

- Heinz ketchup contains genetically modified organisms…
… no wait, this last one is actually true
Did you hear any rumor recently?
