October 19, 2010 Absolut Watkins—New Limited Edition Flavour

Absolut WatkinsLast night, on 18 October, it was “sneak” premièred at a spectacular release party at Villa L’Abri in Cannes—Absolut Watkins, the smashing new limited edition flavour from Absolut, created exclusively for global travellers, reflecting all of the excitement, glamour and star quality of the globetrotting fashion world. Absolut Watkins will be launched throughout the global duty free/travel retail market in January 2011.

The new edition has a truly innovative new flavour; rich, smooth and sensual in taste and aroma with the distinct, mysteriously luxurious qualities of freshly ground coffee with notes of almond, caramel and warm chilli.

The extravagant and glamorous decor of the unique limited edition Absolut Watkins bottle was created by celebrated Swedish fashion illustrator and artist, Liselotte Watkins, famous for her designs for fashion brands such as Miu Miu, Anna Sui and Barney’s as well as for magazines such as Vogue and The New Yorker.

With my bottle decor and the campaign imagery, I wanted to convey something of my own vision regarding the archetype of cosmopolitan glamour,” said Stockholm and Milan based Watkins. “The flavour is a traveller’s exclusive and travelling is one of my great passions. Everything I do is all about people and places, travelling and new experiences.”

The “sneak première” of Absolut Watkins was staged during the TFWA World Exhibition at an extravagant party for trade press and VIPs, complete with set designs and extras employed to add an out-of-the-ordinary sense of the timeless glamour of classic luxury travel, naturally all in the presence of the artist.

What a fab suprise to see my surname on this legendary label!

Wow! I never thought I would see the day that my surname would be on a bottle of vodka! With the amount I drank in the 90s, it’s about time I had some recognition!

Can this be bought on line ?

Yet another Watkins here. As an enthusiastic coffee connoisseur, almond appreciater, and vodka venerator, I am most anxious to get my hands on this, my eponymous elixir!

i have 2 like these

My girl friend got me this vodka and I was curious what you recommend to mix it with? Any suggestions!?

I am trying to purchase this item. Thanks mel

This vodka is absolutely AMAZING! i got it on my way home from new zealand a while ago and am getting rather sad that it’s almost finished :( I’m hoping this can be bought online as I’m desperate for more..
A few tips of what to mix it with:
Coke ( a classic, but goes down SO well)
Espresso Martini - espresso shot, Watkins vodka, vanilla, white rum (or any other liquor you prefer) shake well in cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a martini glass. You can play around with all different ingredients and additions to this cocktail, but having the Watkins spiced almond vodka really accentuates this type of cocktail.
It doesn’t work with lemonade :P
I haven’t tried it with anything else, but I’m sure there are plenty of cocktails that would be excellent with this vodka.
It is by far my most favourite of all vodkas, definitely worth buying :)

Its a rather strong vodka so I don’t drink it straight :P but I’m sure there are plenty of vodka enthusiasts out there that would enjoy it with ice.

I have it in my hands, it is cool, vodka watkins

What a brilliant bottle, very cool looking!

To all you folks named Watkins leaving a reply. Liselott was married to my son, Grant, and kept the name Watkins. I am very proud of her. Even though they are no longer together I will always think of her as a member of my family. She is a special lady.
