Absolute Vanilia is made exclusively from natural ingredients and, unlike other flavored vodkas, does not contain any added sugar. Absolute Vanilia is rich, robust, and complex. It combines the classic flavor character of vanilla with a hint of caramel and a note of dark chocolate. The main ingredients in Absolut Vanilia are Absolut Vodka and Vanilla Flavor. Absolute vodka is made from water and winter wheat. The water comes from a deep spring in Åhus, Sweden, where it is protected from pollution. The winter wheat also comes from Åhus. Winter wheat differs from other types of grain in that it is sown in autumn and not harvested until the following year. In the meantime it lies under the Swedish snow and develops its hard cores. It is also said that winter wheat requires less fertilizer. The vanilla is of course just as natural as all the other ingredients.
