Oliver, Good catch on that. Not sure how interesting this will be if as the article claims they will have “a focus on local ingredients” but “each will have the same recipe.” I would hate to give my liquor $ to an Absolut partner when we have an abundance of great and truly local distilleries to support …

Good find, Oliver. Thanks. Interesting initiative.


It is an Absolut partnering with local entrepreneurs to run and brand each city. My boss was their 1st choice.
