ABSOLUT BERRI AA AAT contains no sugar and uses only natural ingredients. The aA aA-, blueberry and pomegranate flavors are blended with vodka distilled from grain grown in the rich fields of southern Sweden. Mixed with club soda, for instance, it conjures up a lazy summer afternoon, even in winter. Combined with simple syrup, lemon juice and a blueberry garnish, it leans in a fanciful direction. And when mixed with the dryness of cranberry juice and orange liqueur it becomes an exceptionally flirty and delicious Cosmopolitan.
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 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.
