Absolut Vodka was first launched in New York in 1979. It soon became the talk of the town, in the US and eventually of the world. But the recipe behind the clean and natural taste of Absolut is older than 30 years. So is the 18th-century medicine bottle found in an antique store in Stockholm, Sweden, that inspired the iconic Absolut Vodka bottle.
The main ingredients in Absolut Vodka are water and winter wheat. The water has been drawn from a deep well in Ahus, where it has protected from impurities. With minimal fertilizer use, winter wheat is sown in autumn and harvested in autumn of the following year. Throughout the year, the wheat grows under the Swedish snow and sun, developing its robust husk.
Distilled over a hundred times, Absolut Swedish Vodka is exceptionally pure, containing only natural ingredients, and unlike some other vodkas, it doesn’t contain any added sugar. Absolut is as clean as vodka can be. Still, it has a specific taste: Rich, full-bodied and complex, yet smooth and mellow with a distinct character of grain, followed by a hint of dried fruit.
This Absolut Vodka Original has bottled at 40% alcohol by volume. The ways to experience it are almost as many as the number of times it has distilled - countless. Bring your friends or bring yourself. Mix with many or keep it neat. Add soda water, lime juice, and a couple of lime slices to serve yourself the perfect Absolut Vodka Soda or pick any of the drinks below. Enjoy!
