Absolut Wild Tea Vodka

Absolut have turned their attention to tea too, and in 2010 released their Wild Tea Vodka, marrying the “dark notes and mysterious richness of black tea” with “the delicate character of Scandinavian white elderflower”.

The Absolut brand prides itself on the use of ‘natural’ base ingredients (locally-sourced water and winter wheat), and asserts that the tea and elderflower are also entirely natural. The expression is made in the same way as all Absolut vodka – continuous distillation – the only difference being the additional oolong tea and elderflower flavouring.

It can be used to give a simple cup of tea a kick, but there are many other ways to indulge in this drink. The Absolut team suggest trying it with fresh lime juice, or combining it with a dry white wine.

  1. Interesting article but I think you forgot to include the best tea spirit: Pekoe tea liqueur 🙂

    Great topic, some very interesting or influential products. Nevertheless the selection is focus on UK-US producers/markets … after Dutch Pekoe liqueur, no French producers such as Cartron who has also done a great series of tea liqueur including Lapsang, Rooibos and Maté, Boudier a Darjeeling tea liqueur, also Marie Brizard, Briottet and not to forget the great Slovakian Tatra tea range or some Japanese Umeshu and tea for instance. Cheers, it’s tea time !
