ABSOLUT MANDRIN are ABSOLUT VODKA and orange, mandarin and citrus flavor. ABSOLUT VODKA is made from water and winter wheat. The water comes from a deep well in A hus where ita s protected from impurities. The winter wheat is also grown in A hus and differs from other crops: ita 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. Though mandarin and orange is the main flavors, other citrus fruits are added to give ABSOLUT MANDRIN its perfect character.
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. 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.
Absolut Mandrin, an exciting flavored vodka from Absolut. This rich, fruity, full-bodied vodka captures the distinct flavor and character of mandarin oranges, along with a hint of sweetness and a note of orange peel. The finish is smooth with a long aftertaste.
ABSOLUT VODKA was first launched in New York in 1979. It soon became talk of the town, 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.
