Absolut Chicago is a limited-edition, olive- and rosemary-flavored vodka, with a design that captures the heritage, style, and good taste unique to the great city of Chicago. It's rich and aromatic with intriguing herbal notes of rosemary and thyme in a harmonious blend with fresh green olives. It's smooth and mellow with a well-balanced spiciness—making it perfect for classics like the Dirty Martini.
Chicago has long been a great cocktail culture and Absolut Chicago adds something unique to that—a terrific new flavor with a sophisticated savory element that both gives a twist to classic recipes and lends itself to the discovery of new classics. Continuing its trendsetting tradition of artistic collaboration, Absolut has teamed up with Chicago's critically acclaimed, online-design community, Threadless, to crowd-source the bottle art for Absolut Chicago. The winning design was made by longtime Threadless contributor, Ross Bruggink. "I wanted to get real Chicago into the design. The ferris wheel, hot dogs, a pigeon, theater. To me that's classic Chicago. A stylized cityscape incorporates those elements, along with the Chicago architecture everyone loves—or ought to. For me, it was a great chance to try out a new type of canvas—the iconic Absolut bottle. . . ."
