To create Absolut Oak, the team at Absolut developed a bespoke process of first steeping the vodka in oak chips, then cask-ageing it in Swedish, French, and American oak barrels. The appearance of the vodka shifts from clear to a sumptuous dark-gold tint. Complex but subtle, the taste makes it a vodka like no other. It's deep and rich character makes perfect for composing cocktails previously reserved for darker spirits, thanks to its distinctive flavor notes. The innovation behind Absolut Oak has made it a flavor that challenges people to forget what they know about vodka.
