Infused Vodka - Citrus
Absolut Citron Lemon Flavored Vodka
This is a Tier 1 score in the Vodka category. It means the spirit has won the highest recommendation at least once and probably many times.
Absolut Citron vodka is one of the first of a long line of flavored vodkas first launched in 1988. It is not clear that the "citrus flavor" is all natural. They suggest drinking on ice or used in a Cosmopolitan.
In their enthusiastic review in 2010, Wine Enthusiasts recommended it as a "sure classic for vodka tonics."
Absolut claims "all natural ingredients" with "no added sugar." It officially began production in 1979 and, to this day, they take great pride in their production facilities in Ahus, Sweden where "every drop of water" comes from a single "deep well." The vodka uses a soft winter wheat for its base.The brand is owned by French-based Pernod-Ricard.
Absolut vodka is one of the top-selling brands of vodka in the world and is one of the great visionaries in the marketing of vodka. Their aggressive and occasionally scandalous ads in the nineties helped launch the cocktail culture.
