Absolut Grapefruit is made with natural grapefruit flavor, and unlike some other flavored vodkas, it doesn’t contain any added sugar. To put it short and simple: Absolut Grapefruit is truly fresh and fruity in taste, with notes of a distinct pink grapefruit and a well-balanced sweetness.
The Absolut Way Of Making Vodka
In 1879, Lars Olsson Smith introduced the continuous distillation with which he made Absolut Rent Brännvin. Instead of the usual three or four times, the vodka was distilled an infinite number of times. Absolut Grapefruit is made the same way, the only difference is the taste of grapefruit. And, like the rest of the family, it’s produced in Åhus, L.O. Smith’s birth town. Since the process will never change, neither will the true taste of Absolut Grapefruit.
The main ingredients in Absolut Grapefruit are Absolut Vodka and natural grapefruit flavor. Absolut Vodka is made with water and winter wheat. The water comes from a deep well in Åhus which protects it from impurities. The winter wheat is locally grown in Åhus and differs from other crops: it’s sown one fall and harvested the next. The days in between it grows under the Swedish snow, developing its hard grain.
