Copper plays the lead role in the production of Absolut Elyx
Elyx is made entirely by hand in a vintage copper column still from 1921. Thousands of copper packets are used sacrificially, removing unwanted compounds and contributing to a rich and flavorful final product.
The skill and experience of manual distillation produces a luxury vodka with unparalleled character and flavor.
- For the perfect raw spirit for Elyx we achieve maximum contact with copper by using sacrificial copper – this process is called copper catalyzation.
- The raw spirit is further rectified using a vintage copper still from 1921 which is hand operated to make our unique fine spirit.
- The use of the hand operated copper still involves traditional skills and techniques known only by a select few.
It is our unique way in which we use copper that gives Elyx its celebrated rich silky mouthfeel and exceptionally smooth finish.
