Among the many spirits, Vodka certainly plays an important role, both for its historical roots and for the ability with which today it manages to establish itself as a reference distillate in the main cocktail bars and clubs around the world. Vodka is mainly obtained through the distillation of cereals, but it can also be made from potatoes, molasses or other plants; its birth dates back to around 1300, and its paternity has always been disputed between Poland and Russia, two states where traces of it have been found since time immemorial. When we talk about Vodka, one of the universally recognized brands, both by great enthusiasts and by simple occasional drinkers, it is without a doubt Absolut, a distillery that was born in Ahus, a small village of medieval origin located in the county of Scania, in Sweden. Sweden is in fact a nation that, although not traditionally linked to the production of Vodka, in recent years has been able to establish itself on the market, to the point of becoming a real point of reference for this distillate. And it is Absolut itself that is driving this rise, thanks also to the production philosophy chosen: each bottle is born only and strictly from local products, starting from durum wheat, grown in the fields not far from the distillery, up to the water used in the various processes, obtained from a local well owned. Twenty-two types of Vodka are produced in Ahus, still following the traditional recipe introduced in 1879 by Lars Olsson Smith, which involved the use of continuous distillation. Alongside the great classics and bottles flavored with fruit essences, - "Raspberry", "Citron" and "Grape" are simply phenomenal -, perfect to be mixed in the most fashionable drinks, you can also find more niche products , such as the “100” and the “Elyx”, intended for an audience of true connoisseurs.
