A few hours outside of Stockholm you’ll find a small town by the name of Åhus. This is where Absolut Vodka is made.

While visiting Sweden to learn about Absolut’s brand history, we made a stop at their distillery and got to see how everything comes together, from seed to sip. What was most impressive to me is how the last 30-years they have been able to maintain their magnificent growth, yet keep their entire operation within a 75-mile radius. Their farmers, bottling plant, distribution, and everything else involved in making their vodka is done in Åhus.

Check out the gallery above to see some of my favorite photos taken on our day at the Absolut Distillery. And below you can see the video I created from my few days in Sweden.
