SVEDKA – “Voted #1 Vodka of 2033,” each bottle of SVEDKA is made using a centuries-old Swedish vodka recipe. First meticulously distilling over three pounds of high-quality Swedish winter wheat for forty hours in an innovative five-column process. Then blending it with the finest spring water to achieve the SVEDKA crisp, clean finish.
