What does Absolut Mandrin taste like?
Absolut Mandrin is made exclusively from natural ingredients, and unlike most other flavored vodkas, it doesn’t contain any added sugar. It’s complex, smooth and mellow with a fruity mandarin and orange character mixed with a note of orange peel.
The Absolut way of making vodka
In 1879, Lars Olsson Smith introduced the continuous distillation with which he made Absolut Rent Bränvinn (Absolute Pure Vodka). Instead of the usual three or four times, the vodka was distilled an infinite number of times. Absolut Mandrin is made the same way, the only difference is the taste of orange, mandarin and citrus. 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 Mandrin.
Keeping natural ingredients natural
The main ingredients in Absolut Mandrin are Absolut Vodka and orange, mandarin and citrus 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. Though mandarin and orange is the main flavors, other citrus fruits are added to give Absolut Mandrin its perfect character.
