Went over to the office of the a friend's office today. He happened to be the brand manager for Absolut Vodka during its maxxium days. Anyway, during out chat, a perculiar item came up.
the Absolut Lantern.
It's a special release in China back in 2003 or so. While this is genuinely ugly, There's supposed to be a bottle in the lantern. And... well, the thing is, this damn thing is supposed to be numbered.
Here's the only pic about it I found online. a collector in taiwan seemed to have one of this.
Anyone here know anything about it?

Guys,
I just called a fellow collector here in China. He confirmed with me about the Lantern. It is the limited Christmas release, like other skins, in 2003. While he's not a official absolut employee, I trust this guy's info since he's been collecting since the 90's. Soo... This is genuine. Well, Ugly, but genuine.

Yeah, I know, my father lived in singapore for many years in his younger days and he often recounts the experience.


Actually, there's a good chance that some of the lanterns maybe on your turf in singapore. The guy who owns the pic i posted is in Taiwan. So these do flow out of the country fairly often. I have heard about singapore collectors having these, as a friend of mine used to trade with a singapore collector in the past and recall such a lantern like thing.

Post Absolut Blue Disco! 
I want to share this information with all you collectors!

I went to the Absolut Company factory in Åhus yesterday and got a guided tour.
When we were walking around in there I saw a brand new skin! I immediately asked the tour guide about the skin I saw and she pretty much didn´t want to tell me anything, I was probably not suppose to see them. 
I saw 10 guys working on packing the absolut bottle into the new skin and label them, then put them into brand new boxes (cases).
It was a blue cover (skin) looking exactly like the silver disco one but instead of silver it was blue. The same color blue like the absolut regis Very Happy (in the top of each web page)

Do you guys think it´s the new x-mas skin??

Cheers

Alexander

Sounds interesting... I love the fact that the tour guide kinda got caught showing "secret" stuff... ha-ha!

Yeah...she didn´t want to tell me...even though I kept asking about it...haha.... In the end I said: come on, what is it? And she said...hmm...it might come out this fall. The guide was a summer worker ( I don´t know the word for it, but they only work there during the summer). The people packing this skin was also summer workers! I yelled at them...how much do you guys want? Throw me one... Very Happy . They didn´t answer!

Too bad the workers didn't give you one.  BTW, was this a tour at the Åhus factory?  I didn't know that they had guided tours like that?!

Perhaps we can coordinate something on the 30th... I'll be in Denmark at that time.
