Absolut Elyx

Absolut has launched Absolut Elyx – a vodka of real substance that honours the roots of Swedish spirit-making tradition. Manually distilled in a copper column still from 1929, Elyx is made from a single harvest of Swedish winter wheat and the resulting spirit has a natural pure taste and unique silky texture.

There are subtle, floral and fruity tones on the nose and the palate is fresh, pure and invigorating with a silky texture, a long-lasting smooth finish, and a subtle spiciness.
