A limited edition that seeked to awake the creative spirit in all of us.
Absolut Karnival paid tribute to the colourful and larger-than-life character of Latin America's carnival scene. To truly capture this feeling who better to turn to than artist and writer, Rafael Grampá. His work is disruptive, lively and authentic and not only is he a native of Brazil, he’s had first-hand experience of the Carnival atmosphere his entire life.
This limited edition’s final artwork featured a cast of colorful characters on parade around the bottle. A dog dressed up as a rooster, a blue-faced giant happy to give a hug to whoever wants one, a beautiful "Queenfish", and “The Freedom Knight” – a character Grampá describes as “a typical festival-goer who fights taboos and prejudice with joy and music.”
The taste of Karnival? This limited edition spirit shone with a tropical aroma of passion fruit and orange blossom. These rich, smooth, fresh and tropical flavors was combined to evoke some of the magic of carnival.
Our first limited edition for Latin America, Absolut Karnival was only available exclusively at local carnival festivals.
