6. The producers were locavores way before it was a thing
Everything needed to produce Absolut's core brands is grown within a 75-mile radius of Absolut's distillery in Åhus, Sweden. And once being a locavore did become a thing, the company got hyperlocal: 100% of the wheat that goes into Absolut’s luxury brand, Absolut Elyx, comes from the Råbelöf estate, a 600+ year-old family-run winter wheat farm near the distillery.
7. It's got the whole farm-to-bottle situation down to a science
It takes exactly 2lbs of winter wheat to create a single bottle of Absolut vodka. As for Absolut Elyx, each square meter of the Råbelöf estate's rolling wheat fields yields one kilo of harvested wheat, which ultimately translates to one bottle of tasty, tasty luxury liquor.
8. Those bottles might look clear, but they're actually green
Figuratively speaking. In keeping with Absolut's commitment to sustainable business practices, each bottle is made with 40% recycled glass.
