L.O Smith was the founder of ABSOLUT. At the age of ten he is said to have doubled the income at store he worked at. He went into the liquor business in his 20s and by 1879, the king of Spirits started this brand. You see his portrait on all ABSOLUT bottles, where he no doubt watches your proportions in this tribute punch. So do it right!
