Absolut Vodka (Small)
Absolut Vodka (Small) is a Swedish vodka made exclusively from natural ingredients, and unlike some other vodkas, it doesn’t contain any added sugar. In fact Absolut is as clean as vodka can be. Still, it has a certain taste: Rich, full-bodied and complex, yet smooth and mellow with a distinct character of grain, followed by a hint of dried fruit.
One Source, One Superb Vodka
Do you know the unique Absolut story that begins and ends from one idyllic spot in Sweden?
In fact, you can find Absolut all over the world, from a sports bar in Canada to a beach bar in Rio. But did you know that every ingredient that makes it into each bottle comes from one tiny village in southern Sweden?
It’s true. Every drop of Absolut Vodka is manufactured using ingredients from the area surrounding our distillery in Åhus, a tiny medieval village in the county of Skåne. Moreover, it is from the hard winter wheat grown in the rich nearby fields, to the pristine water from our local deep well, and the continuous production in the distillery; everything, including the glass bottle itself, comes from here.
We call this process One Source. One wheat, one source of water, one location and one reason why any bottle of Absolut Vodka, anywhere in the world, has the same distinctive character and taste.

Absolut Vodka was first launched in New York in 1979. It soon became the talk of the town, in the US and eventually of the world. But the recipe behind the clean and natural taste of Absolut is actually older than 30 years. So is the 18th century medicine bottle found in an antique store in Stockholm, Sweden that gave inspiration to the iconic Absolut Vodka bottle.
