Rock and Roll and Absolut Vodka


If you have been living under a rock these past few weeks, you may not have noticed that the 40th anniversary of Woodstock is spawning all manner of memorabilia. I have no problem with this remembrance at all, being that this was certainly a seminal moment in American music and culture.

Well, for those of you that have at one time or another enjoyed a little rock and roll and its accompanying lifestyle, you realize that alcohol is a piece of the puzzle.

Say hello to the Absolute Vodka Rock Edition…

In doing their part to celebrate Woodstock, the Swedish vodka maker enlisted the services of designer Natallia Brilli who just so happens to have a penchant for wrapping things in leather. After all, leather is another piece of the rock and roll puzzle.

Quite frankly, this leather and stud clad bottle is more Scorpions and Judas Priest than it is reminiscent of artists from the Woodstock era, but I guess it is the thought that counts…right? Regardless, this is sure to become a collector’s item. Look for it to arrive stateside in October…
