From the brand
Karlsson’s is a small-batch, handcrafted Swedish potato vodka. It is unique in that it actually has natural taste and flavor. This comes from the raw ingredients, a blend of several varieties of Virgin New Potato from Cape Bjäre, a small region in the southwest of Sweden. A Scandinavian delicacy, these heirloom potatoes are highly revered, sought-after and quite expensive. In order to preserve their character, master blender Börje Karlsson distills them only one time and leaves the spirit unfiltered. The result is a product with a truly artisanal aesthetic and intrinsic flavor. Rich and robust but also creamy and smooth, nothing needs to be added to Karlsson’s Gold Vodka, because nothing is taken away.
