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.

Favorite flavor of absolute! Burn is extremely minimal when drinking in shot form. Not over priced and not overly sweet. Perfect flavor and while price is a bit high, this is definitely worth it!! I recommend

Absolut Vodka Sweden Ruby Red is a great vodka. The price is great and it is a high quality vodka. I would recommend this vodka to anyone looking to try a new vodka. It is good on the rocks or in a mix drink.

smooth, but doesn’t have as strong as a flavor as some of their other flavors, which I was hoping for because I love the grapefruit. Good for the price, but there are others that I like more such as the pear!

This is my second favorite Grapefruit Vodka. It is a lot easier to come by than the other and it almost as good. We always use it to make the yummiest cocktails. Great flavor and great addition to any drink.

Absolut is “absolutely” my favorite vodka! Received this flavored version in a gift pack for my birthday. The ruby red is one I always keep stocked at my house. It is so good on its own, or in mixers and cocktails.

One of the best vodkas I’ve had, I’ve never had a vodka go down so smoothly! I love the packaging of it too because it very unique! My four stars are because the hangover I got from this vodka was killed lol

Mixed with a grapefruit flavored soda this is crisp, refreshing and like summer in a glass. Add, a little grenadine for a tasty little cocktail and use a little crushed ice to make the perfect summery drink.
