ABSOLUT CELEBRATE THE COCKNEY CHARACTERS OF LONDONApril 27th, 2012
We have a bit of an alcohol obsession in our house…our wine rack is stacked full of every kind of vodka, gin, and liqueur you can think of, and our only proviso is that they come in a beautiful bottle. We hardly touch a drop of what’s inside – like a glossy coffee-table book, these ornaments are purely for show!
Our favourite addition to the ‘beautiful bottle’ collection was the crystal skull vodka bottle, but I think we’ve just found a rival contender. Absolut is celebrating the UK’s capital city with ‘Absolut London‘, a limited edition bottle which features cartoon characters from ‘Gorillaz’ co-founder and illustrator Jamie Hewlett.
These super-trendy designs feature a backdrop of London landmarks and seven characters who epitomise London through the ages – the 18th century ‘Dandy’, a punk, the 80′s ‘casual’, even a pinstripe gent. The collective span 200 years of style in London, and the drink comes with a brand new ‘Absolut Bloody London’ cocktail recipe to enjoy while raising your glass to one of the world’s coolest cities.
Absolut London is on sale at Harvey Nichols and Selfridges stores in the UK now – and taking pride of place in my drinks cabinet!
