Celebuzz Cocktail Hour: Get in to the Holiday Spirit with Cocktails Featuring Absolut Elyx
Absolut Elyx is a new definition of luxury vodka, built on the principles of quality, integrity and true craftsmanship. Every drop of Absolut Elyx is made with soft winter wheat from a Single estate, Rabelof, in Southern Sweden.
The wheat is then manually distilled in a vintage copper column still from 1921. The still, operated by hand by a select few, is made entirely of copper. The result is an award winning vodka with a rich and exceptionally smooth mouth feel.
Plus, the brand is doing some good as well. For every bottle of Elyx sold, they Absolut Elyx will provide one week’s supply (140 liters) of safe water to someone who needs it most.
