This season, the ultra-luxurious vodka brand introduced its famous home décor copper collection, which makes it all the more festive for National Vodka Day. Through the partnership between Absolut Elyx and Water For People, every Copper Gift Set sold will provide access to one week of safe water to someone in need.

About Absolute ELYX:

Absolut Elyx is a new definition of luxury vodka, built on the principles of quality, integrity and true craftsmanship. Every drop of Absolute Elyx is made with soft winter wheat from a Single estate, Rabelof, in Southern Sweden. The wheat is then manually distilled in a vintage copper column still from 1921. The still, operated by hand by a select few, is made entirely of copper. The result is an award winner vodka with a rich and exceptionally smooth mouth feel.

About Water For People:

Water for People is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to providing access to improved water and sanitation systems and services in developing countries. By working with local governments, the private sector, and partners, Water for People ensures that everyone in a specific region has these basic needs met forever. This innovative approach reaches every family, every school, and every clinic, catalyzing transformative change for better health and economic development to occur globally.

A special thanks goes to to ELYX and Water for People for keeping us up to date on this endeavor and ELYX for the delicious cocktail recipes for National Vodka Day.
