Super-premium Swedish vodka blended with blackcurrants. Intense blackcurrant nose and flavours with perhaps a hint of black raspberry, very fruity.
What does Absolut Kurant taste like?
Absolut Kurant is made exclusively from natural ingredients, and unlike most other flavored vodkas, it doesnít contain any added sugar. Itís smooth and mellow, with a fruity black currant character and a hint of tartness.
The Absolut way of making vodka
In 1879, Lars Olsson Smith introduced the continuous distillation with which he made Absolut Rent Brannvin (Absolute Pure Vodka). Instead of the usual three or four times, the vodka was distilled an infinite number of times. Absolut Kurant is made the same way, the only difference is the taste of black currant. And, like the rest of the family, itís produced in Ňhus, L.O. Smithís birth town. Since the process will never change, neither will the true taste of Absolut Kurant.
Keeping natural ingredients natural
The main ingredients in Absolut Kurant are Absolut Vodka and black currant flavor. Absolut Vodka is made from water and winter wheat. The water comes from a deep well in Ňhus where itís protected from impurities. The winter wheat is also grown in Ňhus and differs from other crops: itís sown in fall, and harvested the next one. Days in between it grows under the Swedish snow developing its hard grain. Also, the use of fertilizers is minimized. Of course, the black currant is as natural as the rest of the ingredients.
