Absolut Vodka

Absolut Vodka was founded by visionary L.O. Smith a man the called “The King of Vodka”. Absolut Vodka is made in the small village of Ahus is Sweden. Absolut first arrived in the United States in 1979 and has become one of the most popular Vodkas. Many bars and mixologist consider Absolut Vodka a top shelf vodka and reserve it for the best vodka drinks.

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.

In 1879, Lars Olsson Smith introduced the continuous distillation with which he made Absolut Rent Bränvin (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. Ahus is also the place where the wheat used for making the vodka is grown.
