Absolut Vodka is made exclusively from natural ingredients, and unlike other vodkas, it doesn't contain any added sugar. In fact Absolut is as pure as vodka can be. Still, that purity has a certain taste — rich, full-bodied and complex, yet smooth and mellow with a distinct character of grain, followed by a hint of dried fruit.
The main ingredients in Absolut Vodka are water and winter wheat. The water comes from a deep well in Åhus where it's protected from impurities. Winter wheat 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. (from Absolut)
