Everyone has heard of Absolut vodka, and has probably tried at least one of the flavours, even if it's just the unflavoured vodka. Absolut is a Swedish vodka, and is produced near Åhus, in the province of Skåne, in southern Sweden. Which funnily enough is the province in which we used to live.
Absolut do many different varietes; Absolut Blue - the regular unflavoured vodka - a 40% 80 proof vodka, Absolut Peppar - roasted jalapeno, green tomato and dried herbs flavour, Absolut Citron - lemon flavour, Absolut Kurant - blackcurrant flavour, Absolut Mandrin - orange and mandarin flavour mix, Absolut Vanilia - vanilla flavour, Absolut Raspberri - raspberry flavour, Absolut Apeach - peach flavour, Absolut Ruby Red - grapefruit flavour, Absolut Pears - pear flavour, Absolut Mango - mango flavour, Absolut Berri Acai - a blend of acai, blueberry and pomegranate, Absolut Wild Tea - black tea and elderflower flavour, and Absolut 100 - a 50% 100 proof vodka.
I've tried many different flavoured vodka brands, and the Absolut range are definately my favourite, I've actually tried all of the Absolut flavours. I guess that makes me sound like a bit of a lush! Absolut have a wide range of flavours, and all of them bar one (the Absolut Peppar) are delicious. The 'APeach' or peach flavour is definately one of my favourite flavours, and one that we buy fairly often, I definately sound like a lush now!
Absolut APeach was launched back in 2005. Unlike a lot of other flavoured vodka ranges, the Absolut flavoured range doesn't contain any added sugar, therfore they are not too sweet, you just get the true taste of the relevant flavour.
Absolut APeach is a very fruity flavoured vodka. It has a very fruity peach smell, which you can smell instantly when you open the bottle, and also in your glass. The fruity peach taste is unmistakeable, however it isn't sweet or synthetic at all, it's actually quite a smooth, mellow tasting vodka. I don't think that anyone could really dislike this, as it is a really pleasant tasting vodka, and peach is such a popular and inoffensive flavour. If you like peaches I would say that you would love this.
I think that Absolut APeach goes really well when mixed with Absolut Raspberri, it's like a gorgeous fruity peach melba taste, absolutely delicious!
Absolut APeach is the perfect vodka to drink either straight, on the rocks or with a mixer of your choice. It's a really easy drinking vodka due to the really pleasant taste. I think that it's delicious in a bellini with presecco and peach juice. It's also nice with just tonic water or diet lemonade, the taste of the peach really comes through here. Or I like to have a fizzy peach melba with tonic water and both the Absolut APeach and the Absolut Raspberri. I especially like to use Absolut APeach in cocktails, it gives an interesting new twist to traditional cocktails, or it enables you to invent your own new flavoured cocktails.
