Absolut Brooklyn Review

The latest city series from Absolut, Brooklyn is a red apple and ginger-flavored vodka reminiscent of city life. The bottle was designed by Brooklyn native Spike Lee to be reminiscent of the stoop where he grew up. The bottle has tons of fun little deign goodies including the Lars Olsson Smith seal, in which Lars is tricked out as Mars Blackmon, need we say more?

The folks at Absolut sent over a bottle so we could try it ourselves. Absolut Brooklyn has a wonderful ginger-apple aroma, it is quite pleasant on the nose. On the tongue, it is not overly sweet with a well balanced use of ginger and apple flavors. It is very refreshing served over ice with a splash of soda, and of course there are cocktails.

As part of Absolut Vodka’s commitment to supporting the Brooklyn community, the brand is donating $50,000 of the profits from the sale of Absolut Brooklyn to Habitat for Humanity – New York City.

Absolut Brooklyn is now available at bars, restaurants, nightclubs and retailers for Brooklyn stoop parties nationwide in 1L bottles with a suggested retail price of $24.99.
