ABSOLUT ELYX is manually distilled in a 1921 copper rectification still known as Column 51, made entirely of copper. It is operated by a selected few who inherited their knowledge and expertise from past generations of spirit and vodka makers.
Our silky textured vodka is a result of the single estate wheat, the manual operation and the old copper catalyzation process. The copper naturally catalyzes trace compounds in the spirit, purifying the vodka and adding a highly prized silky texture and taste.
ABSOLUT ELYX is the result of century-old expertise, passed down through generations of Swedish vodka-makers. Krister Asplund and his team are amongst the very few people who have the skills and knowledge to operate a manual still. Together they control the temperature and precise rate of flow during distillation by hand. Every handle, knob and level is adjusted manually.
Each batch is made to the uncompromising standards of Krister Asplund and his sensory experts, who taste and approve of each batch before it is bottled.
ABSOLUT ELYX IS THE RESULT OF MANUAL PROCESSES, AUTHENTIC CRAFTSMANSHIP AND HUMAN SUPERVISION THROUGH EVERY DETAIL OF PRODUCTION. CRAFTED FROM SINGLE ESTATE WHEAT AND DISTILLED BY HAND IN A 1921 COPPER STILL TO CREATE A REMARKABLY SILKY VODKA.
Single estate wheat
ABSOLUT ELYX is made in Åhus, Sweden, exclusively from single estate wheat from the Råbelöf Castle, where they have been producing wheat since the 1400s. The wheat grown here contains exactly the right amount of water and has the perfect balance of starch
From seed to bottle, everything is done within a 15-mile radius of the distillery, ensuring quality control and perfection in every detail.
“IT’S NO LONGER ABOUT PORTRAYING AN IMAGE THROUGH EXCESS AND LOGOS. MODERN DAY LUXURY IS ALL ABOUT INTEGRITY.”
