One source is our production philosophy, meaning that every aspect of our production journey takes place in and around the small village of Åhus, Sweden. All ingredients for Absolut Vodka are sourced from southern Sweden. Every drop of water and every seed of wheat comes from one water source, one village, and one community. It is called One Source, the reason why no matter where you are in the world Absolut will always have the same high quality.
We only use hardy winter wheat from the area surrounding Åhus in Southern Sweden. The fertile fields in southern Sweden are ideal for growing wheat, with yields more than twice as high as the global average. It also affords us the most consistent quality we can source. 60% of vodka is pure water after all, so it’s kind of a big deal. That’s why we always tap it locally from our own wells, that are more than 140 meters deep. The water has been filtered through the Swedish bedrock for thousands of years. This level of purity means we need less processing. It gives a natural mouthfeel that you can’t create in a lab.
What’s It Like
