Absolut has been producing a Vodka since 1879. It's produced from the finest grains in Southern Sweden. In accordance to over 400 years of Swedish tradition.
One source is their production philosophy, meaning that every aspect of the production journey takes place in and around the small village of Åhus, Sweden. All ingredients for Absolut Vodka are sourced from southern Sweden. Every drop of water and every seed of wheat comes from one water source, one village and one community. It is called One Source, the reason why no matter where you are in the world Absolut will always have the same high quality.
Absolut pioneered the market for flavored vodkas back in the mid 1980’s, with the launch of now legendary Absolut Peppar and Absolut Citron. What started out as two, has now grown into a collection of 17 flavors.
Made from the distillation of anything containing fermentable sugars, Straight Vodka is a clear and unaged spirit. Cereal grains like wheat, rye and barley are the most commonly used bases, but modern Vodkas are now made from crops as diverse as sugar beets, grapes and potatoes. Ideally Straight Vodkas should be colorless, odorless and flavorless. They are sipped chilled and neat, or used as a base for a variety of cocktails, from the Martini to the Cosmopolitan.
