ABSOLUT Vodka: 2013 Opens on a floral note
The newest addition to the ABSOLUT VODKA family is an intriguing blend of hibiscus and pomegranate.
The Absolut Company introduces ABSOLUT HIBISKUS, the first-ever floral-flavoured vodka to join the ABSOLUT flavours family. With a unique blend of hibiscus and pomegranate, ABSOLUT HIBISKUS opens a wide road to creative mixology with inspiration from the garden.

For our customers, and for anyone who wants to mix cocktails at home, floral drinks is a discovery, bringing totally new flavours and tastes,” says Jimmy Dymott, Chief Bartender at Little Quarter, Stockholm, one of Europe’s top 25 bars according to the Cocktail Spirits Awards 2012.
