ABSOLUT HIBISKUS - the First-ever Floral-flavoured Vodka in Malaysia

Last month, I've received the "One of a kind. Millions of expressions." ABSOLUT Unique. This time round in conjunction with Malaysia’s Independence Day and Malaysia Day, ABSOLUT HIBISKUS, the first-ever floral-flavoured vodka is introduced by Pernod Ricard Malaysia. Malaysians can look forward to artist collaborations and parties nationwide to sample this latest addition to the ABSOLUT flavours family.

ABSOLUT HIBISKUS which I've received came along with a scroll.
ABSOLUT HIBISKUS is incredibly easy to mix - perfect for creating complex cocktails and still sensational by adding just one ingredient. ABSOLUT passionately leads the creation of exceptional cocktails, bringing the cocktail culture in a new unexpected direction. The slightly acidic, berry-flavour hibiscus is underlined by the sweet notes of pomegranate – made from all natural ingredients.

The bottle designed with different colours of Hibiscus, national flower of Malaysia.
“The introduction of ABSOLUT HIBISKUS locally couldn’t have been timelier as Malaysians worldwide are commemorating National Independence Day and Malaysia Day just weeks apart. We hope that everyone eligible will be proud owners of the iconic ABSOLUT HIBISKUS, which pays homage to Malaysia’s national flower – celebrating the distinctive mix of Malaysia”, said Terence Ong, Managing Director, Pernod Ricard Malaysia.


In support of Malaysian talents for creativity and innovation, Pernod Ricard Malaysia collaborated with artists from http://www.3editions.com/


The artists were: Michelle Lim who makes her various artworks come to life on paper, sometimes with a digital edge; Tan Howe Qin who focuses on experimenting with white, grey & black & playing with electronics; Hyacinthe Kaur whose major influences in her designs have been cultural in nature specifically Native American Indian and Hindu; and Abs Lee a self-taught monster illustrator who explores creating wacky illustrations.


Four in-outlet events celebrating ABSOLUT HIBISKUS will be held at Poppy KL, Luna Bar KL, Mois Penang and the finale will be held at The View, KL.
