Absolut Ruby Red was introduced in 2006, following the success of the other citrus flavors, Absolut Citron and Absolut Mandrin. The name Absolut Ruby Red is taken from a special kind of red grapefruit. And grapefruit is of course what it tastes like!

What does Absolut Ruby Red taste like?

Absolut Ruby Red is made exclusively from natural ingredients, and unlike some other flavored vodkas, it doesn’t contain any added sugar. Absolut Ruby Red is smooth and fruity with a crisp and refreshing character of zesty grapefruit.

The Absolut way of making vodka

In 1879, Lars Olsson Smith introduced the continuous distillation with which he made Absolut Rent Brännvin. Instead of the usual three or four times, the vodka was distilled an infinite number of times. Absolut Ruby Red is made the same way, the only difference is the taste of grapefruit. 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 Ruby Red.

Keeping natural ingredients natural

The main ingredients in Absolut Ruby Red are Absolut Vodka and grapefruit 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. Of course, the grapefruits are as natural as the rest of the ingredients.

It was just okay. Very strong flavor but not in a good way. Even when it was mixed with things you could still pick out the strong vodka flavor. The package is pretty and it markets well but I wouldn’t buy it again.

Absolutely so delicious. Just by itself it can hold its own! The bottle really gets you and makes you want to purchase it because it’s pretty. Perfect for mixed drinks as well and especially if you like sweet drinks

We use this to make the Alabama Sunset from BJ's! I love their drinks and it is my second favorite from the Pink Cadillac. My husband and I always have to get the brand name alcohol for the drinks so that we can recreate them at home as closely as possible! Absolut Ruby Red

Not the best quality but it tastes alright on its own. It’s pretty sweet but goes well with some juice, such as cranberry or orange. I don’t think I would buy again unless I’m on a budget because it’s pretty cheap.

I love the ruby red flavor. It’s absolut vodka so the value is great, especially the price for the size. However if you’re looking for a great grapefruit vodka, I definitely prefer Deep Eddy’s ruby red to this.

So smooth and refreshing. The perfect vodka for a nice summer mixed drink. The grapefruit flavor really packs a punch. This brand is so superior to any other vodka brand. I will be buying this all summer long!

I love the tart fresh taste and how well it blends. I can find it at most windmill and abc stores for a good affordable price. With a sweetness that is all it’s own I love it and recommend to anyone who asks

Wasn’t the best flavored vodka I have ever tried but was ok. Wasn’t overly expensive compared to other similar vodkas. Ha a bunch of weird flavors unlike other brands. A bit expensive for the normal consumer
