The smooth, rich and dark taste of vodka rested on oak. 

Oak by Absolut

You’ll want to rise to the occasion when making these cocktails; perhaps even invite your booze aficionado pals over to impress, because this subtly smokey vodka takes your drink to a whole new dimension. 

Its versatility and the elevation of those familiar vodka flavors creates a refined twist on a classic. If you’re looking for something that little bit special, it’s time you joined the dark side with Oak by Absolut.

Inspired by the bartenders who - in a twist of genius - started ageing their own cocktails, we decided on getting crafty ourselves. This new product is made  through a unique process of resting original Absolut vodka with different types of oak in both barrels or macerations.. The oak is of Swedish, French and American origins, combining new and toasted barrels, as well as Bourbon casks. Each is a distinctly different wood, and the precision of this complex process is what creates the unique mix of subtly different flavors.

It’s a bold change, but going from clear to dark results in a barrel-rested vodka that develops richness, depth and an unmistakably bold character. With sweetness of caramel, hints of vanilla and subtle amounts of smokiness, the unique Oak by Absolut is like no other. We highly recommend attempting to mix some of the cocktails yourself if you’re looking for something a little special for your night.
