Absolut Drinks Campaign Launches with Cocktail Party in NYCDecember 8, 2009
On Thursday, December 3, 1200 guests were treated to an evening of ABSOLUT Exceptional Experiences as the brand unveiled its new ABSOLUT Drinks campaign, the iconic brand’s latest creative collaboration that brings the ABSOLUT cocktail world to life through renowned fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth and critically acclaimed actors Kate Beckinsale and Zooey Deschanel. Campaign focus cocktails including ABSOLUT Bloody, ABSOLUT Crush, ABSOLUT Tonic Twist and ABSOLUT Cosmo were served while guests enjoyed the evening’s festivities. The event was held at 508 W 37th Street in New York City.
With the tagline, ‘Every Drink is an Exceptional Experience,’ the new ads in the Drinks campaign are a tribute to those drinks that changed the playing field within the cocktail community and continue to have relevance among today’s vodka connoisseurs. The initiative underlines that every cocktail starts with a story – from the legendary lore of the Bloody Mary’s creation at Harry’s Bar in Paris to the legions of female fans of the otherworldly Cosmopolitan.
