- Core release (Discontinued, replaced by Absolut Äpple)
Absolut Orient Apple is made exclusively from natural ingredients, and unlike some other flavored vodkas, it doesn’t contain any added sugar. Absolut Orient Apple is fresh and fruity with a distinct character of ripen red apples with a slight note of ginger.
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. Absolut Orient Apple is made the same way, the only difference is the taste of ripen red apple and ginger. And, like the rest of the family, it’s produced in Åhus, L.O. Smith’s birth town. Since the process will never change, neither will the true taste of Absolut Orient Apple.
The main ingredients in Absolut Orient Apple are Absolut Vodka and ripen red apple and ginger flavor. Absolut Vodka is made from water and winter wheat. The water comes from a deep well in Åhus where it’s protected from impurities. The winter wheat is also grown in Åhus and differs from other crops: it’s sown one 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. Of course, the apples and ginger are as natural as the rest of the ingredients.
