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.

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.

Absolut Vodka is one of the most well-known vodkas in the world. 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. 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.
