The ABCs of Absolut Korea

Our new limited edition bottle takes a pinch of old and new traditions for a bold makeover in ode of Korea.

Meet our latest limited edition vodka – Absolut Korea. It’s a coffee, almond and chili flavored vodka that celebrates the vibrant culture of Korea, where old meets new and time honored traditions collide with the pulse of the modern world.

Taking inspiration from the look of traditional architecture, Korean artist Heo Wook has created a design that intricately combines Korean letters from the Hangul alphabet to form the word Absolut. (For those of you not up on your history, Hangul is the traditional Korean alphabet dating back to 1393 and praised worldwide for its scientific design and general excellence.)

But Korea is not just defined by its past. The design also uses five symbolic Korean ‘obang’ colours - blue, red, yellow, white and black - to symbolize the dynamic and bright future that lies ahead.

Available only in Korea, unless you already live there, you’ll need to plan a vacation to get your bottle.
