Absolut Vodka who thrives on coming up with limited editions has made us fall in love with its latest avatar. Its the bottle that Barney Stinson would buy if he were a real person. After all, how many alcohol bottles can claim to be dressed in their pinstriped best ?
Absolut has tied up with Skogsberg & Smart to release this limited edition pinstripe bottle. The bottle is crafted by centuries old Swedish glassmaker Reijmyre – hand-blown, hand-cut and hand engraved. The bottle self-admittedly is inspired by Savile Row’s pinstripe tailoring and comes in clear crystal or black crystal colors. Absolut also throws in a handmade treasure chest with matching tumblers for company.
Limited to 800 bottles worldwide, each of which is expected to retail at $1500 (this is only the crystal clear version) ; the black crystal bottles are even further limited to merely 10 bottles (each of which costs a whopping $10,000).
