liquidHandmade in Sweden with
quality local ingredients,
Absolut Elyx is a unique
luxury vodka that has
earned the respect of
London's top bars S
tyle and substance. Now there's a combination.
With its copper embossed bottle, Absolut Elyx
certainly has the stylings of a luxury vodka. But
the proof really is in how it tastes. You see, it isn't
like other vodkas. That's because it's made by
hand, using only winter wheat grown on a single
estate in Åhus, Sweden.
In fact, every part of the production, from the planting of
the rst seed, all the way through distillation and bottling,
is performed within a 25km radius in the Åhus region of
Southern Sweden. This is vodka made the natural way,
removing any impurities manually, and using an original
copper still from 1929.
It's a complex process that takes experience and skill. It
means every sip of Absolut Elyx has a silky texture, and a
long-lasting smooth nish with a subtle spiciness. Copper
distillation makes every drop of vodka fresh, pure and
invigorating to sip, with subtle, oral notes and fruit tones
on the nose. It's smooth enough to sip straight-up on the
rocks, or as part of a cocktail.
With no computers, or hefty mechanics involved in the
distillation process, quality relies on the craftsmanship and
skill of the select few who make it. That's why the brand
has partnered with world-class mixologists at four of the
best bars in London - Artesian at The Langham, NOLA
London, Purl London and City Social - to create bespoke
cocktails that showcase the unique quality of Absolut Elyx.
To sample these special creations, simply book a table
at one of the partner bars, sit back and experience the
smoothness and avour that is unique to Absolut Elyx.
But if you can't make it to the bar, don't worry. You don't
have to be a top mixologist to create a drink that really
showcases the craftsmanship behind this vodka. And
to get you started, we've also provided you with a couple
of recipes to experiment with. So grab a glass and some
ice and let Absolut Elyx do the talking.
Absolut Elyx is available from Waitrose; £38 for a 700ml bottle
