Absolut is produced in the town of Åhus in Sweden from locally-grown winter wheat. First introduced to the US in 1979, its iconic apothecary bottle is recognizable around the world. Absolut was first introduced in 187 as Absolut Rent Brännvin (absolutely pure vodka) by Lars Olsson Smith. It is he who adorns the silver medallion on each bottle.

Absolut has always had a light charcoal note on the nose for me, along with traditional hospital character, and that’s still true. But served straight up, the Swedish superstar is considerably sweeter than memory offers, with brisk caramel notes to balance out its medicinal underpinnings. The finish is short and uncomplicated, fresh with some grassy as well as lemon hints, but mostly offering a sweet, somewhat dessert-like feel.
