And finally it was time for Sweden to get their own limited edition bottle. Working with one of Sweden’s most inspiring artists, Fredrik Söderberg, it was truly inspiring to see how the story, mystique and unique expression of Absolut Svea came to life.
When we asked Fredrik to depict Sweden as a piece of art on our bottle, he wanted to visualize the extreme contrasts of our seasons. Cold and warm. Light and dark. Summer and winter.
The taste of Absolut Svea have distinct notes of red apple, a strong reflection of swedish summer, and leaves you with a hint of ginger, often used in pastries during the long and cold winters. The combination gives a warmth and spiciness from the ginger, which meets the acidity and freshness of the apple.
