Love is the most powerful force in the world. And today the world needs it more than ever. That is why our new limited edition bottle is all about turning hate into love. We call it Absolut Drop, and it will stand as a symbol for love and peace – and good spirits.
The ink printed on this bottle was taken from hate signs around the world and repurposed to spread a better message. Love. We hope this action will inspire others to turn hate into love and that they will feel that everyone can do something to make this world a better place.
The vodka inside Absolut Drop is the classic Absolut Vodka, made exclusively from natural ingredient and with no added sugar. The taste is best described as full-bodied and complex, yet smooth and mellow with a distinct character of grain, followed by a hint of dried fruit.
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. 100 years later, it was reintroduced as Absolut. Just as then, Absolut is produced in Åhus, L.O. Smith’s birth town. Also, the place where the wheat used for making the vodka is grown. And since the way Absolut is made won’t change, neither will the true taste of vodka.
The main ingredients in Absolut Vodka are water and winter wheat. The water comes from a deep well in Åhus where it’s protected from impurities. Winter wheat differs from other crops: it’s 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.
