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.

I love grapefruit juice but it's super sweet. This flavored vodka is great because it gives vodka soda's a hint of grapefruit without it being too sweet. Would definitely recommend!

I'm a huge fan of absolut vodka in general, so it's so surprise that I'm a fan of the ruby red too. Best thing about absolut, is you don't get that aquanet hairspray after taste, goes down smooth and be drank alone or with your favorite juice

LOVE this vodka. Not only is the flavor great (not over bearing and easy to mix), but the packaging is super cute! Great way to add that pop of color my liquor cabinet calls for.

This is light, crisp and actually refreshing over ice! It also makes a great summertime drink when blended with citrus fruit, juice and ice! This certainly doesn't disappoint!

I loved the flavor of this. It wasn’t hard to keep it down, and it didn’t have an overwhelming alcohol taste. I was able to ditch my chaser because I didn’t really need it.
