Flavoured with natural extracts of Swedish blackcurrants, which grow as far north as the Arctic Circle. Absolut Kurant was launched in 1992, in the Cosmopolitan days which followed the launch of Absolut Citron, with the result being the Metropolitan cocktail.

Created in 1993 by Chuck Coggins at Marion's Continental Restaurant & Lounge, New York City, the Metropolitan cocktail (a berry flavoured variation on the Cosmopolitan) remains on cocktail lists around the world to this day.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 01/05/2011


Crystal clear.


A nose reminiscent of dark coloured boiled sweet with vanilla and violet aromas.


A palate which British readers may liken to vodka and diluted Ribena.


The blackcurrant fruit gives way to grainy black pepper spirit notes which continue into the more subtly fruit flavoured finish.
