Absolut Mandrin was launched in 1999, 20 years after Absolut Vodka. It’s the fourth flavored Absolut product after Absolut Peppar, Absolut Citron and Absolut Kurant. And since mandarin and orange are among the most popular flavors in the world, Absolut Mandrin was received with the same enthusiasm as the rest of the family members.

What does Absolut Mandrin taste like?

Absolut Mandrin is made exclusively from natural ingredients, and unlike some other flavored vodkas, it doesn’t contain any added sugar. It’s complex, smooth and mellow with a fruity mandarin and orange character mixed with a note of orange peel.

The Absolut way of making vodka

In 1879, Lars Olsson Smith introduced the continuous distillation with which he made Absolut Rent Bränvin. Instead of the usual three or four times, the vodka was distilled an infinite number of times. Absolut Mandrin is made the same way, the only difference is the taste of orange, mandarin and citrus. And, like the rest of the family, it’s produced in Åhus, L.O. Smith’s birth town. Since the process will never change, neither will the true taste of Absolut Mandrin.

Keeping natural ingredients natural

The main ingredients in Absolut Mandrin are Absolut Vodka and orange, mandarin and citrus flavor. 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 in 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. Though mandarin and orange is the main flavors, other citrus fruits are added to give Absolut Mandrin its perfect character.

Just the perfect amount of Mandrin flavoring, not too over powering at all.
I loved to mix it in with some sprite, it made for a very nice refreshing drink to sip by the pool.
Absolut is always worth the price, I don’t mind paying a little more for the quality, I don’t enjoy hangover headaches and Absolut is one of the best brands in my opinion, I enjoy their vodka & im never disappointed!! Highly Recommend!!

I got this vodka when I was experimenting over the summer making alcoholic popsicles and needed flavored alcohol. It was very reasonable in price, the flavor was very much like I wanted, it was very smooth and not over powering when I mix everything together and tried it. Everyone that tried them love the taste and thought it was very refreshing. I will definitely be buying again in the future.

Review for: ABSOLUT MANDRIN VODKA more...
The quality of this vodka was good, much smoother than some other brands. However, I wasn't a huge fan of the taste. Obviously this is just a personal preference. I expected it to be more citrus-y when I tried it, so when I mixed it with grapefruit La Croix (a great mixer by the way), it didn't taste quite like I expected. I like Absolut but prefer other flavors.

Review for: Absolut Vodka Sweden Mandrin 1L Bottle more...
I must say after trying this product with my sister on her birthday, I was not all that impressed with it because it was kinda strong to me. Maybe it was because she had some other type of liquor in mixed with it but I couldn't taste the flavor of this product. I tasted a taste of something but was not sure because something about it was off to me. I tried it without any chaser and it was not strong going down which was a plus for me. I like this product without any chaser because I can taste what it was supposed to be. I will tell you this, I drank 3 shots and I was like, Hello, all night. Other than that, this product is pretty good by itself, I don't like to chase this product with anything else.

I absolutely love the mandarin flavor with a splash of pineapple juice. I will drink it well I'm out on the town or if I'm home just looking to relax. It so smooth and refreshing. Its definitely my go to vodka and it's also reasonably priced. I would definitely buy this again. I have a bottle in my liquor cabinet just waiting for a rainy day

I bought this on a whim one friday evening as we were have a few friends over that night .  Now not naming names but I also bought 2 other brands for variety . At the end of the evening , the Absolut bottle was empty ! Drained dry ! And the other 2 brands were over half full ! I think that speaks volumes ! We are still buying it !

With the absolut vodka family I prefer the flavors over the regular vodka. Vanilla pairs well with coke! Mandarin and citron pair well together! Citron is always a good choice when preparing a lemon drop! And for a little extra kick to a Bloody Mary try the peppar gives it that extra pepp in your step!

I love absolut vodka but I am not a big fan of orange flavored vodka. But if you mix it with a cream soda it tastes like a orange creamsicle. It is affordable compared to Tito’s or Belvedere. I bought it at Walmart. I probably would not buy again just because I don’t like orange flavored alcohol.

I have always loved Absolut’s flavored vodkas. The mandarin is probably my favorite with its delicious citrus flavor. It is sweeter than the citron, and tastes great in fruity cocktails or just mixed with soda. The flavor is good without being artificial or overpowering. Definitely recommend!

Review for: Absolut Mandrin Vodka 750 ml more...
Absolut is so smooth! This mandarin flavor is amazing to mix with sprite. Originally my drink of choice was just unflavored vodka and sprite, when I was looking for something different I went with orange vodka. Others are okay, but this will always be my the vodka for my drink of choice!
