Only one word is needed to describe this luxury vodka.

And just as silk is one of the finest fabrics to wear, this spirit from Absolut is one of the best vodkas on the market.

Elyx is the product of Swedish craftsmanship generations in the making. The vodka is handcrafted in a copper still dating back to 1921. I repeat—handcrafted. Many distillers today have little to no experience operating a manual copper still, but the Swedes behind Elyx have been preserving this method for generations.

Elyx is made in Ahus, Sweden with single-estate wheat from nearby Rabelhof Castle, under the watchful eye of distillers who must manually adjust every knob and level to ensure the vodka in the bottle is nothing shy of perfection.

The results of this craftsmanship have won over experts too. In 2013 Elyx earned Best Vodka and a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
