Country Of Origin: Sweden

Absolut Vodka was first launched in New York in 1979. But the recipe behind the pure and natural taste of Absolut is actually older than 30 years. So is the 18th century medicine flask found in an antique store in Stockholm that gave inspiration to the iconic Absolut Vodka bottle. In 1879, Lars Olsson Smith introduced the continuous distillation with which he made Absolut Rent Brännvin (Absolute Pure Vodka).

Instead of the usual three or four times, the vodka was distilled an infinite number of times. 100 years later, it was reintroduced as Absolut. Just as then, Absolut is produced in Åhus, L.O. Smith’s birth town. Also the place where the wheat used for making the vodka is grown. And since the way Absolut is made won’t change, neither will the true taste of vodka.

The main ingredients in Absolut Vodka are water and winter wheat. The water comes from a deep well in Åhus where it’s protected from impurities. Winter wheat differs from other crops: it’s sown in fall, and harvested the next one. Days in between it grows under the Swedish snow developing its hard grain. Also, the use of fertilizers is minimized.

ABSOLUT ELYX is the result of century-old expertise, passed down through generations of Swedish vodka-makers.  It is manually distilled in a 1921 copper rectification still known as Column 51, made entirely of copper, operated by a selected few who inherited their knowledge and expertise from past generations of spirit and vodka makers.

This silky textured vodka, made in Åhus, Sweden, is made exclusively from single estate wheat from the Råbelöf Castle, where they have been producing wheat since the 1400s. The wheat grown here contains exactly the right amount of water and has the perfect balance of starch.  From seed to bottle, everything is done within a 15-mile radius of the distillery.  This, along with manual operations ensuring quality control and perfection in every detail, plus the old copper catalyzation process whereby the copper naturally catalyzes trace compounds in the spirit, purifying the vodka, results in this highly prized silky texture and taste.
