FRONTLINES:True originality is rare, but every bottle of Absolut vodka from the Swedish brand’s Unique series is, as the name suggests, a one-of-a-kind work of art.
Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst have collaborated with the brand in the past, and although there is no celebrity behind the current limited edition, it is every bit as collectable. The production line has been rebuilt to ensure that each bottle is given a distinctive finish, using 22 colours applied at random to a special coating that comes in 16 colours and 51 patterns. Coating, pattern and placement algorithms have been created to ensure that no two bottles are the same. Absolut Unique is available nationwide, €21.89. Marie-Claire Digby
