Absolut Vodka is one of the best selling white spirits in the world. It has a 40% ABV and it comes from Sweden. The recipe was created by Lars Olsson Smith 400 years ago. He managed to improve the distillation process of brandy and the production process of the Swedish vodka. The product born from this process was called Pure Absolut Vodka.
In 1979 Absolut vodka began to be exported to the US, in a format similar to a medicine bottle. Soon after,Absolut Vodka became worldwide well-known, besides being one of the most widely sold in the market of alcoholic beverages, widening a lot its market quota.
Currently Absolut it's not just a drink, but also a collector's item. Bottles are so special that people collect them, especially the Limited Editions.
In addition to the bottles, one of the characteristics that distinguish Absolut Vodka from the other beverages is the variety of flavors. Among of many flavors we would like to highlight the following:
- Absolut Ruby Red: Created in 2006 with a flavor of red grapefruit. Perfect for those who like citrus and its flavor.
