    10 Absolut Vodka

    Grain & Neutral
    Absolut is produced in the town of Åhus in Sweden from locally-grown winter wheat. First introduced to the US in 1979, its iconic apothecary bottle is recognizable around the world. Absolut was first introduced in 1879 as Absolut Rent Brännvin (absolutely pure vodka) by Lars Olsson Smith. It is he who adorns the silver medallion on each bottle.

    9 St. George Green Chile Vodka
    95
    Spicy & Neutral
    The multi-step process required for this vodka starts with filling a still with jalapeño, lime peel, and a non-GMO base spirit which passes through a chamber packed with fresh cilantro. The resulting spirit is then separated into parts and individually macerates with even more peppers: Serrano, habanero, red and yellow sweet bell before being carefully blended back together. Then this concoction is lightly-filtered and still maintains a slight green glow.
