Originally introduced in 1879 as ‘Absolut rent bränvin,’ which translates as ‘Absolutely pure vodka’, in 1979, the brand’s centenary, the bottle was redesigned in the style of an old Swedish medicine bottle. Since then, Absolut has been produced in the Swedish town of Åhus from winter wheat.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 30/05/2016

Appearance

Crystal clear

Aroma

Almost neutral nose with slight doughy bread, Ryvita crispbread and black pepper.

Taste

Clean, black peppery spice and faint brown bread with even fainter cream of soda vanilla and liquorice.

Aftertaste

Muscular peppery spice with faint cream of soda and liquorice finish.

Overall

The 'premium' vodka that paved the way for all the many others, Absolut is clean with enlivening cracked black pepper and faint bready character.
