Absolut vodka has been relaunched with a stronger bottle shape, an updated two-line logo, a redesigned medallion and reduced glass weight. In addition, there is a new ’brand signifier’ on the back of the bottle in the form of a bold ’A’ as shorthand for the Absolut brand.

Support for the vodka comes from a new Taste Perfection platform to celebrate classic cocktails.

Adam Boita, head of marketing at Pernod Ricard, says: "Classic cocktails dominate the top 10 cocktails in the UK and we’re seeing an exciting revivalist trend where the future of cocktails lies in the past. Fifty-three per cent of frequent cocktail drinkers bought a cocktail in the last week and 50% experiment with variations on the cocktails that they like (CGA Cocktail Report)."
