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.

Smooth and great with pineapple and strawberry juice. When taking shots it is not to harsh going down. Very kind when you just want a sip and feel good for the moment. Not too expensive either.

When I was younger this was my go to vodka. I would take any flavor but the ruby red was my favorite. It's lower price but higher quality than others made it a good option for a tighter budget and for someone younger that didn't know of any other alternatives, it's good. You will probably have a hangover though, the sugar content is high l. I would say go and try tito's vodka!

Big fan of Absolut and huge fan of the Ruby Red flavor. It's affordable and the flavor is very tasty - makes vodka much easier to drink. I've purchased it before and would purchase it again in the future. I also personally love the different designs on the bottle depending on the flavor, and as someone who really values aesthetics, that's another huge selling point for me.
