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.

My absolute favorite and go to vodka. All you need is a splash of lime juice and tonic. It creates a very refreshing drink that isn't too overpowering with citrus flavor. The price point is perfect and we always have it in our house.

Absolut makes a consistently great product. It’s smooth, it doesn’t burn, and it goes great in many different varieties. In love the grapefruit because it gives it a nice citrus taste and is great in the summer with some raspberry lemonade or orange juice.

This is one of my favorite flavored vodkas of all time. I mix this with Sprite and the sugar brings out the flavor. It is a dangerous combo especially in the summer! I have turned others on to this! Recommend and repeat purchase.

Grapefruit flavored vodka is my favorite and Absolut’s is one of the best! Mixed with grapefruit juice, water or sparkling water and you have a delicious drink!! Will keep buying. The pretty bottle definitely doesn’t hurt either!

I love grapefruit everything, this not so much. It had a really strong artificial flavor of grapefruit and I could taste the hangover my first drink, I use club soda for a mixer so it was obvious right away. Won't be buying again

Absolut is one of the smoother Vodka's for the price. Extremely high quality for the low price factor. Smooth, crisp, subtly sweet and excellent flavor. Great for straight shots or perfect for making mixed drinks. Would definitely recommend.

Try this in a traditional vodka soda and you've got an extremely refreshing spin on a vodka soda! Nice to mix things up with a flavored vodka and this would always be my first choice. Perfect for a party or to spice things up!

Not a bad vodka, pretty good with a fruited concoction. Not always a big fan of Absolute Infused vodkas however this and the Mandarin Orange flavor is on point! Great with fruity mixes, and not so bad as shots by itself
