Watery vodka

I only drink absolut vodka. Every time I drive through New Hampshire I buy a handle of absolut vodka and put it in my freezer here in New York. For the first time ever it has turned into a brick of ice. The only reason I can see for this is water in the vodka. My roommate also had a bottle of vodka in the freezer that is quite fluid. I thought I should let you know. This really isn't good. I would consider changing brands but I really like your vodka.

  • Hi Amelia,

    I do apologise for all the inconvenience you have experienced.

    There is a possibility that the vodka will freeze when the freezer is a little bit colder than usual. All 80 proof vodka freezes at a temperature of -24 degrees Celsius. The vodka will however remain the same quality once it has melted - it helps to shake the bottle gently.

    I wouldn't recommend to drink the vodka very cold. The perfect serving temperature is aprox 5-8 C. You can of course put the vodka in the freezer, but the colder vodka you have the more flavour and smell is lost.

    I hope the above information is useful.

    Kind regards,

    Jake D
