ABSOLUT ELYX IS THE SUPER-PREMIUM RESULT OF MANUAL PROCESSES, AUTHENTIC CRAFTSMANSHIP AND HUMAN SUPERVISION THROUGH EVERY DETAIL OF PRODUCTION
Since its inception in 2013, the exceptional purity and silky smooth texture of ABSOLUT ELYX has brought new meaning to the definition of luxury vodka.
Taking its ‘one source’ concept to the next level, ABSOLUT ELYX is made entirely from single estate wheat from the Råbelöf Castle in Sweden.
As terroir isn’t something that vodka makers usually focus on, the production of single estate vodka is fairly uncommon and so this makes ASBOLUT ELYX unique.
Honouring the roots of Swedish spirit making traditions, ABSOLUT ELYX is manually distilled in a 1921 still with columns, pumps and pipes made of solid copper.
This takes place at the Åhus distillery, nearby the Råbelöf estate, where the copper works to attract the sulphuric elements that give ABSOLUT ELYX its highly prized texture and taste.
When the alcohol vapours come into contact with the copper still, an interchange called copper catalyzation occurs and purifies the vodka.
Given that these stills are no longer made, ABSOLUT ELYX is one of few types of vodka that is able to capitalise on copper distillation and the characters of which it infuses.
Under the watchful eye of Krister Asplund, Vice President of Operations, the copper still is manually operated by a select few who inherited the knowledge and skills of vodka making from the generations before them.
While this old-time process is lengthy and time-consuming, its reward resides in the super-premium labels highly refined taste.
Recognized by its character and elegance, ABSOLUT ELYX is clear and bright with a pure and silky texture. It has a well-rounded aroma of fruit and aniseed, a luxurious soft taste and a smooth, clean finish.
A perfect blend of substance and style, ABSOLUT ELYX is best enjoyed when served in a rocks glass over hand-chipped ice. Garnished with fresh cut lemon zest or star anise, this simple expression should be sipped and savoured.
If it’s a classic cocktail that you long for, then fear not as ABSOLUT ELYX perfectly aligns. Created for those who value integrity, ELYX makes any vodka martini silky smooth, just the way the individual who invented the glorious glass intended.
The finest expression of expertise, creativity and passion, ABSOLUT ELYX is available in a 700ml, 1500ml, 3000ml and 4500ml copper inspired bottle – perfect for any and every occasion.
A unique combination of traditional craftsmanship, copper distillation and cutting-edge design, ABSOLUT ELYX was recognized as ‘Best Vodka’ – the highest title in the spirits category – and received a double gold medal at the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
ABSOLUT’s answer to the ongoing craft spirits movement, the ELYX single estate has certainly set the standard for the high-end side of every respectable bartenders shelf.
