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.

Did not enjoy this vodka. Bought it because of a sale, but found it bitter and no mixer could hide it.

Did not like the flavor of this vodka. The taste was a bit tar. The design of the bottles are great. Love their products they’re all affordable. I do prefer their mango absolut better, way better flavor. I won’t be buying this ever again and wouldn’t recommend to others.

I don’t really like the flavor orange, but that doesn’t mean others don’t. I’m sure it could be mixed in with yummy drinks, but it just is not for me! Price is average and what you would expect for a bottle of average vodka!

Terrible. Just awful. Taste is disgusting. Sends me back to my days of underage drinking and vomiting in the woods. It’s affordable on a high school budget and I’ve moved on. I will never buy this again.

Too sweet for my liking. I prefer the non flavored hard bar. I'm sure if it was a one drink mixed with club soda or something it might have tasted better.

Mandarin goes well with orange or grapefruit juice, maybe it might do fine in a sangria but i only tried it once and i'm not a fan.

First off I love absolute vodka but this one I hated it. The mandrain flavor was absolutely disgusting never will I ever drink this again. It was not my choice my sister got it for me. I'm glad I tried it so I don't gotta drink it again lol. Don't recommend this one pass on it. You won't regret it.

Love the mandarin taste. Just not sure about the quality of the vodka. Always makes me sick in just a few drinks.

Sooo if you wanna get really drunk for a fairly inexpensive price this is a great option. It's definitely not as smooth as more expensive brands. You can taste the Mandrin flavor but my liver hates me after drinking this. I wouldn't do it again
