Absolut Vodka

Swedish vodka

Bold, original, creative. Absolut Vodka launched in New York, 1979. Our transparent bottle, inspired by an 18th Century medicine bottle, stood out from its tall, flashy, competitors. This was 1970s New York, after all. You had to be different to get noticed.

Inspiration through collaboration

It was something of a first when Absolut started collaborating with artists and thinkers. Our first collaboration was in 1985 with Andy Warhol. The success of the ‘Absolut Warhol’ commission kick-started something of a relay race, with the Absolut baton being passed between some 550 artists since. There are over 850 pieces of Absolut art on display at the “Spritmuseum” in Stockholm — you should come see it sometime.

Advertising, our way

Where other brands created loud, abrasive campaigns, we stuck to our Scandinavian roots — cool, calm, collected. Visual and verbal puns combined with simple, striking imagery, always with our famous bottle’s silhouette somewhere in the ad. We are proud to say this came to be the longest running marketing campaign in advertising history.

Evolution, not revolution

Absolut Vodka is still a unique character, in both design and taste. Still ridiculously curious about creativity, collaborations and art. And still the key player for the perfect mix in any social occasion. And since all vodka from Absolut is produced in Southern Sweden, our superb vodka tasted exactly the same then as it does now. Nothing has changed.
