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 Orient Apple is made exclusively from natural ingredients, and unlike most 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.
Äpple was renamed from Orient Apple when the bottle was redesigned in 2013, however the vodka remains the same great flavor.
