- Unknown copies for the skin, 4 000 000 for the originality bottle
This “cat” skin had only been released in China, in 2013.
The Originality bottle is the 2013 end-of-the-year edition.
Taking inspiration from traditional Swedish glass crafts, every bottle of Absolut Originality has a drop of cobalt blue infused into its glass. This colouring technique has been used for centuries in hand-made art glass, but never before has it been applied to create four million original bottles. Added just as the molten glass goes into the mould at 1100°C, the drop of cobalt blue streams down inside the glass creating a unique streak of blue. At that temperature the cobalt is invisible, but as the glass cools off, a beautiful and unique blue infusion appears.
Absolut has always experimented with new techniques, going off the beaten track to develop innovative and artistic products, and Absolut Originality is a celebration of the original thinking that has always been the brand’s creed. Adding a sophisticated contrast to the crystal clear glass, the blue streak makes each bottle original and unmistakably Absolut.
