Post Meet Absolut Vodka Collectors - AUGUST 13, 2010 (Sweden)

The guest list is closed -- thanks for registering, we'll see you soon.

TRAIN/BUS INFORMATION POSTED AT THE BOTTOM

Friday, August 13, 2010
Absolut Vodka tour in Åhus, Sweden

Saturday, August 14, 2010
ICEBAR & Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark



Friday, August 13, 2010
Absolut Vodka factory tour in Åhus, Sweden

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Meet at Hotel ÅhusStrand (map) no later than 11:30am (Absolut will pick us up by bus).

Jan Toreheim, Absolut's Global Brand Ambassador, will host the tour.  We start by going to the distillery in Nöbbelöv, then the bottling plant (Satellit), and end up at the warehouse.  Afterwards, we'll go to the presentation room and end with a session on Absolut's creative heritage, L.O. Smith and the bottle.  The tour ends around 6:00PM, at which point Absolut will drive us back to Hotel ÅhusStrand (photos). 




Special guest speaker: Gunnar Broman. 
Gunnar Broman, head of Sweden's top ad agency, traveled to New York in 1978 to sell his distinguished counterparts at N.W. Ayer on a locally produced vodka that didn't yet exist. The very idea of Swedish vodka was an oxymoron at the time, anyway, for everyone knew back then that real vodka came exclusively from Russia. Sweden had been distilling the beverage since 1467, though, and Broman had a briefcase full of ideas with him on the trip for pushing a soon-to-be-developed version in the U.S. He brought plenty of slides along to illustrate them, and even had several solid plastic bottles made up to demonstrate exactly how they would look on store shelves. One, in particular, captured the New Yorkers' attention: a plump vessel with "no label, no decorations, and no neck." Etched on its otherwise totally clear container, in pure silver, was the legend "Pure Absolut Vodka." Someone joked that it looked like a sterile medicine bottle, but the Americans' interest was piqued. And, with it, Absolut Vodka was on its way.


Mats Svensson, the hotel owner, will also present a lecture about Absolut and its history, Swedish vodka tradition and lots of other things.  Normally the program costs $60/person, but for us it's FREE.  We'll also get to see the Black Stone bottle, the world's most expensive Absolut bottle originally made for the Royal Swedish family during their visit to Absolut Vodka in Åhus.



If you're staying at Hotel ÅhusStrand, they've offered us a special discount (book early, this is during the peak summer season). Price includes breakfast buffet.
Double room: 475 SEK / $60 per person. Single room: 775 SEK / $90 per person. Use the following reservation code to get your room discount: Absolut collectors


A very special Absolut dinner is served at the hotel starting at 6:45pm. Please see details for pricing, menu, etc.  Thank you Mats for your price discount.

I've seen several Absolut parties taking place in Singapore, but this is a special collectors gathering... you guys will have to arrange something yourselves to make it happen.  Go for it  Okay
