Product Details

This silky textured vodka from Sweden is a result of the single estate wheat, the manual operation and the old copper catalyzation process. The copper naturally catalyzes trace compounds in the spirit, purifying the vodka and adding a highly prized silky texture and taste. The spirit is manually distilled in a 1921 copper rectification still known as Column 51, that’s operated by a selected few who inherited their knowledge and expertise from past generations of spirit and vodka makers. The vodka is produced 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, ensuring quality control and perfection in every detail.

About the Producer

Absolut Vodka is produced in Åhus Sweden, and was established in 1879 by Lars Olsson Smith. Smith introduced fractional distillation which produces liquor without fusel alcohol in Sweden in 1877, under the name "Tiodubbelt Renadt Brännvin" (Tenfold Purified Vodka). Brännvin literally means "burnt wine". The name was changed to "Absolut Rent Brännvin" (Absolutely Pure Vodka) by Smith to market his improved product. Absolut Vodka was introduced to the global market in 1979. Since its launch, Absolut has grown from 90,000 liters to 96.6 million liters in 2008. It has become the largest international spirit and is available in 126 countries. The vodka is made from winter wheat, and the brand is owned by Pernod Ricard.
