Absolut Vodka is one of the best known Vodkas in the world. It is a Swedish Vodka made exclusively from natural ingredients, and unlike some other Vodkas, it does not contain sugar. In fact Absolut is as clean as Vodka can be. Still, it has a certain flavor: rich, full-bodied and complex, at the same time smooth and velvety with a distinctive grain character, followed by a touch of dried fruit. In 1879, Lars Olsson Smith introduced continuous distillation with which he made Absolut Rent Brännvin. Instead of the usual three or four times, this Vodka is 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 hometown. In addition, it is the place where the wheat used to make this Vodka is grown. The way Absolut is made will not change, nor will the true taste of vodka. The main ingredients of Absolut Vodka are water and winter wheat. The water comes from a deep well in Åhus where it is protected from impurities. Winter wheat differs from other types: it is sown in the fall and harvested in the same season the following year. During this period it grows under Swedish snow, thus presenting a hard grain. In addition, the use of fertilizers is minimized.
