Know-how

The main ingredients in Absolut Vodka are water and winter wheat. The water is drawn from a deep well in Åhus where it is protected from impurities. With minimal use of fertiliser, winter wheat is sown in autumn and harvested in autumn of the following year. Throughout the year, the wheat grows under the Swedish snow and sun, developing its robust husk.
Distilled over a hundred times, Absolut Vodka is exceptionally pure, containing only natural ingredients and no added sugar.

History of Absolut Vodka

1879

In 1879, distiller Lars Olsson Smith, nicknamed “The King of Vodka”, introduced continuous distillation from which he created Absolut rent bränvin (“perfectly pure vodka”). Instead of the usual three or four times, Olsson Smith distilled his vodka over a hundred times – a method introduced by Absolut a century later. Today, Absolut Vodka is produced in Åhus, the birthplace of Olsson Smith, from wheat grown in the same area.
