Absolut Citron is smooth and mellow, with a fresh fruity lemon and lime character and a note of lemon peel.
Absolut Citron was launched in 1988, the success was largely due to the twist of lemon people, but it also became the main ingredient in the blockbuster drink “Cosmopolitan.” It is made exclusively from natural ingredients, and unlike some other flavoured vodkas, it doesn’t contain any added sugar. The main ingredients are Absolut Vodka and citrus flavour. Water and winter wheat that are added come directly from Åhus in Sweden, founder L.O. Smith’s birth town. Also the use of fertilisers is minimised. Instead of the usual three or four times, the vodka was distilled an infinite number of times. Though lemon is the main flavour, lime is also added to give Absolut Citron its perfect character.
