Absolut Äpple was introduced in 2011. The flavor is based on ripen red apple and ginger and in combination with a fruity and naturally sweet taste. It might be the reason behind the instant world wide success.
Absolut Äpple is made exclusively from natural ingredients, and unlike some other flavored vodkas, it doesn’t contain any added sugar. Absolut Äpple is fresh and fruity with a distinct character of ripen red apples with a slight note of ginger.
The absolut Way of making vodka
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 Äpple is made the same way, the only difference is the taste of ripen red apple and ginger. 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 Äpple.
Keeping natural ingredients natural
The main ingredients in Absolut Äpple are Absolut Vodka and ripen red apple and ginger 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 apples and ginger are as natural as the rest of the ingredients.
