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.

I don't normally like the taste of vodka but the flavor of this one is amazing! It makes taking shots so easy and smooth for me. It is reasonably priced and you can find it at any liquor store. I love to mix it with Sprite or even 7 up. I've bought it twice and I'll never go back.

This was one of my favorite alcohols for years (I don’t drink as much lately). It was tasty and smooth. It partnered well with Sprite and my best friend and I loved it. I still keep some in the house to share with visitors, it’s always fun to surprise them with how much they like this!

Great value! Absolute vodka is at an excellent price point. It is extremely smooth with no bite or after taste. The packaging compliments any home bar. I’ve been drinking this vodka for about 10 years now and it is my go to choice when my favorite premium brand is unavailable.

I wished there was more sweetness to it to combat the bitterness of the vodka. It is pretty good as a mixer. The price is good for how strong the flavor is. It's one of the best on the market as far as different flavors. I'll probably try another flavor soon this summer.

Strong enough Vodka and mixes well! I would seriously recommend it! Works well for Jello shots! Ive had it plenty of times. Mixed in with certain shots. Also do not drink and drive. Always have a DD. If you can't find one, Uber or Lyft. I would totally buy this again.

I am a huge vodka drinker and absolut is one of my FAVORITES! The taste is so smooth and they have tons of flavors! Mandarin is one of my favorites to drink straight or put in a cocktail with some sprite and a splash of peach nectar! I can always find a good deal on it too!

Dangerously delicious! Sip on this all night and you might not be able to stand. Good price. Good taste. My local liquor store carries all the absolut vodka flavors and this one is definitely one of my absolut favourites! I'm 100% satisfied and would buy again and again.

The vodka itself was pretty smooth but the mandarin tasted more like an essential oil extract rather than the actual fruit. Kind of reminded me of sucking on an air freshener so I don’t recommend it as a stand alone drink but it’s not too bad mixed in a citrus punch.
