Absolut Vodka has launched Crystal Pinstripe, the next generation of its 2010 released Crystal bottle, to global travel retail.
Produced in partnership with Swedish designers Skogsberg&Smart, the â€œhand blown, hand cut and hand engravedâ€ bottle is already on sale at Stockholmâ€™s Arlanda airport, but will be sold at selected global travel retail outlets this autumn.
According to the Pernod Ricard brand, the Crystal bottle is presented in a â€œhand-made â€˜treasure chestâ€™ caseâ€ clad in â€œclassic pinstripe fabricâ€ and is accompanied by two â€œhand-craftedâ€ crystal tumblers. The inspiration for the bottle was the pinstripe suit, first made famous in Savile Row, London.
Each of the 800 bottles released have been numbered and signed by the â€˜master cutterâ€™ at Reijmyre glassworks in Ã–stergÃ¶tland.
