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.

This is a great mandarin flavor. It goes well in orange juice you can’t taste it at all. I buy this flavor a lot.

This is my second favorite absolut flavor, but it was hard not to call it a tie. It's very versatile and can be used in many drinks, as it isn't too sweet.  It's better than other flavored vodkas and has a very natural taste. I'd definitely get it again, in fact I have many times :)

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

I was very eager to try this new flavor, but unfortunately it was not my favorite. Absolute is a little bit on the more expensive end compared to other vodka's on the market and I would buy Smirnoff before buying this again from Absolute. If you like this flavor then you will love it, but it was just not my thing.

This flavor isn’t overwhelming and is great even with water or a club soda. It gives a mixed drink good flavor without overwhelming the drink

While absolut isnt my favorite vodka it is a lot smoother than others I have tried. It is reasonably priced and offers a variety of flavors. Mandrin is one of the best.

Any flavored drink is great to drink to ease the burning sensation/taste of raw alcohol. Easy to chase with flavor of choice. Also, can get creative and festive to get the vibe going.
