"Produced from winter wheat, a hardy wheat grain that gives Absolut its smooth grain character uses a unique process called continuous distillation, introduced in the nineteenth century by 'The Vodka King', Lars Olsson Smith. It is distilled hundreds of times until all impurities have been removed." Tasting Notes
Absolut Vodka was first launched in New York in 1979. It soon became the talk of the town, in the US and eventually of the world. 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.
