Made exclusively from natural ingredients, Absolut is a Swedish clean Vodka. Without any added sugar. Still, Absolut has a rich and full-bodied taste characterized by grain and a hint of dried fruit. First launched in New York in 1979, Absolut Vodka soon became the talk of the town in the US and ultimately of the world. The inspiration of its iconic bottle came from an 18 century medicine bottle found in an antique store in Stockholm.
