Absolut is celebrating the rediscovery of Andy Warhol’s Absolut Blue painting with a new limited-edition bottle that honors the iconic artist’s legacy and emphasizes the transformative power of creativity. Almost 40 years after its first collaboration with Warhol, Absolut is rekindling this artistic partnership to champion inclusivity and creativity through art.

In 2020, a second Warhol painting for Absolut was rediscovered at auction, proving the long-rumored existence of another artwork. The original contract confirmed that two paintings had indeed been commissioned. Now part of the Absolut Art Collection, the painting will be unveiled at Stockholm’s Spritmuseum in October as the centerpiece of a new exhibition titled “Andy Warhol, Money On The Wall.”

Matt Foley, VP of Marketing at Absolut, expressed the brand’s excitement: “As a brand with a longstanding commitment to the arts, dating back to 1985 when we first worked with Andy Warhol on the iconic ‘Absolut Warhol,’ Absolut is thrilled to debut the limited-edition Absolut Warhol Blue bottle. Warhol was a big supporter of Absolut’s mission, and now that the ‘blue’ painting has finally been rediscovered, we’re excited to honor his legacy with this new bottle as a way for consumers to have a piece of his art in their homes.”

The limited-edition bottle features a visually artistic and layered aesthetic with a multi-layered screen-printed design. The bottle’s design elements combine both internal and external components, bringing Warhol’s rediscovered Absolut Blue painting from 1985 to life. Each shade of blue has been carefully extracted from the painting, creating a striking likeness to the original. The final details include an image of Warhol himself alongside his original signature, making this bottle a collector’s item for art enthusiasts and Absolut fans alike.

The Absolut Warhol limited-edition bottle will be available in US markets this September 2024. For more information, follow @AbsolutUS on social media and visit the campaign page live on July 1st. Additionally, watch a short film depicting how the rediscovered painting transcends the cultural legacy of Absolut and Warhol.
