The true taste of sun-ripe cherries, fresh white cranberry and sweet plum. When we were to launch ABSOLUT CHERRYKRAN in the US in May 2012, someone said: “Its taste is so multi-dimensional, that you can make a sophisticated drink just by adding one ingredient.” This is true, which makes ABSOLUT CHERRYKRAN incredibly easy to mix. As true as it is, we’d still like to tell you a few facts about our new flavor:
ABSOLUT CHERRYKRAN is smooth and mellow with a long fruity and berry finish with notes of sun-ripe cherries, fresh white cranberry and sweet plum. Just as with all other of our products, ABSOLUT CHERRYKRAN is made exclusively from natural ingredients and unlike most other flavored vodkas, it doesn’t contain any added sugar or added preservatives.
In 1879, Lars Olsson Smith introduced the continuous distillation with which he made Absolut Rent Brännvin (Absolute Pure Vodka). Instead of the usual three or four times, the vodka was distilled an infinite number of times. ABSOLUT CHEERYKRAN is made the same way; the only difference is the taste sun-ripe cherries, fresh white cranberry and sweet plum. And, like the rest of the family, it’s produced in Åhus, L.O. Smith’s birth town. Since nothing of that will change, neither will the true taste of ABSOLUT CHERRYKRAN.
The main ingredients in ABSOLUT CHERRYKRAN are ABSOLUT VODKA and sun-ripe cherries, fresh white cranberry and sweet plum. ABSOLUT VODKA is made from water and winter wheat. The water comes from a deep well in Åhus where it’s protected from impurities. The winter wheat is also grown in Åhus and differs from other crops: it’s sown one fall, and harvested the next one. Days in between it grows under the Swedish snow developing its hard grain. Also, the use of fertilizers is minimized. Of course, the sun-ripe cherries, fresh white cranberry and sweet plum are as natural as the rest of the ingredients.
The richness and complexity of ABSOLUT CHERRYKRAN really make just a few ice cubes a perfect company for it. However, if you’d prefer mixing a drink with it, we won’t stop you! After all, ABSOLUT passionately leads the creation of exceptional cocktails. With every new flavor we aim to take the cocktail culture in a new unexpected direction.
