In 1879, Lars Olsson Smith introduced the continuous distillation with which he made Absolut Rent Brännvin. Instead of the usual three or four times, the vodka was distilled an infinite number of times. Absolut Pears is made the same way, the only difference is the taste of pear. And, like the rest of the family, it’s produced in Åhus, not far from L.O. Smith’s birth town. Since the process will never change, neither will the true taste of Absolut Pears.
