Absolut Vodka is the world's third largest spirits brand. Absolut Vodka is produced using southern Swedish winter wheat and pure spring water. The spring water is drawn from a deep well in Åhus, where it is protected from dirt and contamination. The winter wheat also comes from the town of Åhus. Absolut Elyx is a premium vodka made exclusively from hand-picked wheat and distilled in old copper kettles. The bottle design reminds of an old copper kettle. Attention: as the gold-coloured coating of the raised lettering on the Elyx large bottles is very sensitive, practically all bottles show small coating peeling. Unfortunately, this is production-related and cannot be prevented. Please do not order if you cannot accept this circumstance.Tasting notes:Color: Clear. Nose: Creamy, vanilla.
