What does Absolut Vanilia taste like?
Absolut Vanilia is made exclusively from natural ingredients, and unlike most other flavored vodkas, it doesn’t contain any added sugar. Absolut Vanilia is rich, robust and complex. It has a distinct character of vanilla, notes of butterscotch and hints of dark chocolate.
The Absolut way of making vodka
In 1879, Lars Olsson Smith introduced the continuous distillation with which he made Absolut Rent Brännvin (Absolute Pure Vodka). Instead of the usual three or four times, the vodka was distilled an infinite number of times. Absolut Vanilia is made the same way, the only difference is the taste of vanilla. And, like the rest of the family, it’s produced in Åhus, L.O.Smith’s birth town. Since nothing of that will change, neither will the true taste of Absolut Vanilia.
Keeping natural ingredients natural
The main ingredients in Absolut Vanilia are Absolut Vodka and vanilla 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 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. Of course, the vanilla is as natural as the rest of the ingredients.
