What they say
Absolut Vodka as we know it today was first launched in New York in 1979. It soon became the talk of the town, in the US and eventually of the world. The recipe behind the pure and natural taste of Absolut actually dates back to 1879, when Lars Olsson Smith introduced the continuous distillation with which he made Absolut Rent Brännvin (Absolute Pure Vodka). A medicine flask found in an antique store in Stockholm gave inspiration to the iconic Absolut Vodka bottle.
Absolut Vodka is made exclusively from natural ingredients, and unlike other vodkas, it doesn’t contain any added sugar. In fact Absolut is as pure as vodka can be. Still, that purity has a certain taste: Rich, full-bodied and complex, yet smooth and mellow with a distinct character of grain, followed by a hint of dried fruit.
