Absolut Citron was ideal news for “vodka on the rocks with a twist of lemon” fans back in the 80’s. More specifically Absolut Citron was launched in 1988, nine years after Absolut original and two years after the first flavoured family member Absolut pepper. The success was major among the twist-of-lemon-people, but it also became the main ingredient in the blockbuster drink “cosmopolitan”. Made from natural ingredients and unlike some other flavoured vodkas, it does not contain any added sugar. To put it short and simple: Absolut Citron is smooth and mellow with a fresh fruity lemon and lime character and a note of lemon peel.
