SVEDKA

Description

Svedka is a Swedish brand of vodka, manufactured in Lidköping, Sweden and owned by New York-based Constellation Brands. The product name is a portmanteau of the words Sverige or Svenska ("Sweden" and "Swedish" respectively in the Swedish language) and the word "vodka". The spirit is 80 proof (40% alcohol). The flavored versions are 75 proof or 37.5% alcohol. Although a circa Nov. 2014 Citron bottle clearly states it is 70 proof or 35% alcohol. A one-litre bottle is produced using about 1.5 kg of wheat and spring water. Svedka is bottled unflavored, as well as in citron, cherry, clementine, raspberry, vanilla, and piña colada flavors.

Svedka has received several awards from spirit ratings organizations, including a rating of 93 points from Wine Enthusiast in 1999 and 2004, and a Silver Medal in the International Wine and Spirit Competition. Proof66's aggregate score for Svedka's unflavored vodka places it in the Top 90th percentile among rated vodkas.
