This year, International Vodka brand, Absolut, looks to the future and makes a new mark by introducing a freshly redesigned bottle – an icon for the future made by a passionate group of creatives who push boundaries in their pursuit of perfection.
Since its launch in 1979, the Absolut Vodka bottle has stood out for its shape. The new bottle is a transformation of the original, featuring an updated two line logo, a new script, a redesigned medallion, reduced glass weight and a new brand signifier. To update what was already seen as a perfect bottle, Absolut brought together a group of creatives including a master illustrator and master calligrapher, each adding their mark to the new bottle through their own pursuit of perfection.
A trendsetter among the design community, the Absolut Vodka bottle is already respected all over the world. One of the most significant updates was to add a brand signifier to the back of the bottle, adding a bold, new shorthand for the Absolut brand. The iconic shape of the bottle has been strengthened to feature more clearly defined shoulders, straightened neck and body, and a flattened bottom while also using a reduced glass weight to minimize environmental impact.
While the bottle has evolved, the vodka remains the same. As part of its ‘One Source’ philosophy, every bottle of Absolut is crafted in the village of Åhus in Southern Sweden, where vodka-making knowledge has been accumulated and passed down through generations.
The new bottle will be found in all leading retail stores
