An entire exciting new year is ahead of us and the possibilities are plentiful, much like the ever-seemingly endless flavour innovations of Smirnoff and it's rival ABSOLUT vodka .

Through creative brand architecture, packaging design, iconography and innovation, Smirnoff has become not only the No. 1 vodka, but also the world’s No. 1 spirit.

In addition to their ever-growing list, Smirnoff has launched 4 new scruptious flavours just in time for the holiday season!

Being a designer, traveller, adventurer and a creative cocktail maker (with an entrepreneurial spirit), I am utterly impressed by ABSOLUT's truly unique approach to their artistic design branding and clever, yet original advertising campaigns.
Enter the world of ABSOLUT - a mesmerising, circus-like splendour where the trend is to forever outdo in the stakes of eclecticism and obscurity (think Willy Wonka for adults).
Available in nearly any flavor you can possibly imagine and an array of varying designs (many of which are limited edition), there is one thing that will always remain the same; the iconic 'medicine bottle' design of the vodka bottle itself shining in all its decedent glory. Ladies and gentleman, I give you ABSOLUT.

In an effort to continuously push the envelope, ABSOLUT has created nearly 4 million absolutely unique bottles, as a one-of-a-kind work of art. In order to produce these bottles, 38 different colours were used, 51 pattern types were applied and ABSOLUT had to re-engineer its whole production process! Impressed yet?

DOO is a new fruit "smoothie" . The meaning of the name comes from the french word "doux" which means "sweet" in English.
