Introduced in January 2012, Absolut Gräpe is the latest flavor in the Absolut family. Absolut Gräpe is incredibly easy to mix and is made from all-natural ingredients and contains no sugar. The combination of white grape, dragon fruit and papaya makes Absolut Gräpe so multi-dimensional, that you can make a sophisticated drink just by adding one ingredient.
Absolut Gräpe is made exclusively from natural ingredients, and unlike some other flavored vodkas, it doesn’t contain any added sugar. Absolut Gräpe is smooth and fresh with floral notes of white grapes and subtle fruitiness of Dragon fruit and Papaya.
In 1879, Lars Olsson Smith introduced the continuous distillation with which he made Absolut Rent Brännvin. Instead of the usual three or four times, the vodka was distilled an infinite number of times. Absolut Gräpe is made the same way, the only difference is the taste of white grapes, dragon fruit and papaya. And, like the rest of the family, it’s produced in Åhus, L.O. Smith’s birth town. Since the process will never change, neither will the true taste of Absolut Gräpe.
The main ingredients in Absolut Gräpe are Absolut Vodka and white grapes, Dragon fruit and papaya flavor. Absolut Vodka is made from water and winter wheat. The water comes from a deep well in Åhus where it’s protected from impurities. The winter wheat is also grown in Åhus and differs from other crops: it’s sown one 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. Of course, the white grapes, dragon fruit and papaya are as natural as the rest of the ingredients.
