The search for purity is the priority of the Swedish brand Absolut. Faithful to the spirit of its inspirer, Lars Olsson Smith, The Absolut Company is intensifying its quest for perfection and launching in 2011, Absolut Elyx, an ultra premium vodka sublimated by copper. The presence of copper is twofold. The walls of the stills are made of this metal. Copper particles are also added to the wort during the first distillation so that a catalytic process eliminates unwanted sulphuric compounds.
Single Estate winter wheat is duly selected from the Rabelöf estate in southern Sweden. The water comes from the deep well near the distillery and is protected from impurities. Elyx is continuously distilled by hand in a copper column dating from 1921. The human intervention on the alembic still validates an unequalled precision and underlines the artisanal dimension of the conception of this exceptional vodka. The continuous distillation is carried out in small batches.
Absolut Elyx is to be classified separately in the different ranges of the brand. It is distinguished by a higher alcohol content (42.3%). The design of its 1l bottle has an unusually angular shape for an Absolut bottle, enhanced by a predominantly copper-coloured composition. Crystal-clear and luminous, Elyx offers clean and round aromas, velvety and balanced flavors, and a mellow and fresh finish. Macadamia nuts, white chocolate, hazelnut, fruit and baked bread are all recognizable. A luxury full-bodied vodka, aptly described as liquid silk.

PRODUCER: The Absolut Company
ELABORATION: Absolut Elyx 3L is made from pure natural water from Åhus and winter wheat wells. The latter has been cultivated in the small town of Åhus, in the southern part of Sweden, in the state of Råbelöf, for more than 6 centuries. This wheat is what makes this vodka its personality. It grows in the snow and develops hard grains before being harvested the following year. The grains are then sorted by hand, and only the best are kept for its preparation. After fermentation, it undergoes double distillation. The first aims to remove all unwanted components through a layer of copper.The second is a continuous distillation in copper column stills dating from the 1920s. This process gives this spirit its purity, its silky texture, its unique taste and its fruity and sweet character. This exceptional vodka is produced in a limited edition.
DEGREE OF ALCOHOL: 42.3%
