Throughout the month of August, this luxury vodka will be the main ingredient in signature cocktails served up at six restaurants where you are the judge. Head over to Galley Beach, Greydon House, Station 21, The Club Car, CRU and Island Kitchen, try their Absolut Elyx Vodka drinks, and then vote BELOW for your favorite.

Distilled from winter wheat that’s been grown on a single estate in the region of Ahus, Sweden, Absolut Elyx Vodka has a luscious, smooth mouth feel that makes you think of liquid silk. Using a unique, handcrafted distillation process in a vintage copper still from 1921, Elyx is the perfect vodka for a crisp, smooth martini on Nantucket.

Best of all, you’ll be drinking for a good cause. Absolut Elyx Vodka has teamed up with Water for People on a five-year mission to provide access to safe water to over 100,000 people worldwide. Every bottle of Elyx sold in the U.S. provides access to one week of safe drinking water (140 liters). Meanwhile, every Elyx cocktail sold provides about three gallons of clean drinking water. So order yourself up one of these delicious drinks and help spread awareness of the global water crisis. Doing good never tasted so good! Please enjoy responsibly.
