Absolut Unveils its First State-Inspired Vodka Honoring the Lone Star State

Absolut TexasAbsolut vodka brand unveils its eighth and latest addition to the Absolut Limited Editions portfolio with the launch of Absolut Texas – the brand’s first and only state-inspired flavor. Internationally renowned San Antonio-based artist Cruz Ortiz designed the Absolut® Texas bottle as a modern take on classic Texas iconography.

The taste of Absolut® Texas is rich and smooth with notes of fresh cucumber, and a warm spicy character; inspired by the flavors of Southwestern cuisine. It pairs well with a myriad of ingredients, such as cranberry, cilantro and grapefruit soda.

“From the unique Southwestern flavor to the one-of-a-kind bottle design, Absolut® Texas is our biggest and boldest Limited Edition flavor to-date,” said Afdhel Aziz, Brand Director, Absolut Vodka, Pernod Ricard USA. “Absolut Texas was truly designed as a celebration of all the best that contemporary Texas has to offer.”

Cruz’s bottle design features a modern spin on iconic Texas imagery, including a “cosmic caballero” cowboy boot against a stylized Texas landscape and his take on the Texas Star.  The bottle also features Absolut founder Lars Olsson Smith wearing a cowboy hat, marking only the second time in the brand’s history in which Smith’s logo has been altered.
