Absolut Kurant is just one of the enticing flavours offered by Absolut Vodka. Blackcurrant is a typical berry in Sweden, the home of Absolut, so it should not be surprising that this flavourful little berry earned the right to be the protagonist in a premium vodka loved around the world. Crafted as a tribute to the Swedish roots of the brand, Absolut Kurant has no added sugar, meaning that the flavour achieved is all natural.
For more than a century, Absolut has been taking its local products and crafting them into a gem. The recipe for Absolut Vodka has remained the same since the beginning and only calls for two ingredients: local water and winter wheat. Both of these ingredients are sourced from the areas surrounding the distillery in the city of Åhus, Sweden. When these ingredients are coupled with experience and passion, the result is a premium vodka that is loved around the world.
This vodka is the base on which Absolut Kurant is built. The final result is a spirit that manages to be both fruity and tart while not overly sweet. It will be a welcome addition to any number of mixed drinks, bringing a new berry flavour to the palate of flavours that you can use behind the bar.
- Colour: Absolut Kurant is crystal clear in appearance.
- Aroma: Blackcurrant chewy sweets with notes of vanilla and violet.

PRODUCER: The Absolut Company might have been founded all the way back in 1879, but it continually seeks to modernize its processes in keeping with a philosophy of sustainability and corporate social responsibility. It has been part of Pernod Ricard since 2008, but is still based in the town of Åhus.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: Launched in 1992, Absolut Kurant takes Absolut's wildly popular premium vodka and infuses it with the essence of real blackcurrants, which grow as far north as the Arctic Circle. First launched in 1992, this is the bottle reached for around the world when an alcoholic brambly essence is called for in shot or cocktail, without the added sweetness of something like a crème de cassis. In Sweden these currants ripen in July just as Swedes begin their summer holidays, ready to raise their glasses to the pleasures of fresh summer fruits. Why don't you join them?
The Absolut Company was founded in Åhus, a small town with less than 10,000 inhabitants in southern Sweden. It is one of the most famous and best-selling vodka brands in the world and is now part of the portfolio of the French group Pernod Ricard. It is also the third largest alcoholic beverage brand in the world.More about the Producer
