Vodka could be made from fermented boot juice (the mixture of sweat and other moisture you get in just about any boot at the end of a long day of wearing them, though I'm thinking specifically of dinghy trapeze or hiking boots where you get this wonderful milky white colouration which smells even worse than it sounds) if you like (and can get sugars out of it). Rum must be made from the product of sugarcane. We could even argue that rum, as opposed to rhum agricole and cachaca, is the distillate of fermented cane-molasses.

I'd rather be in a boat with a drink on the rocks, and in the drink with a boat on the rocks.
