Absolut Vodka Goes Couture With Their Limited Edition Crystal Pinstripe Bottles.
Following the success of their partnership in 2010 (the rock crystal cut Absolut bottle shown below), Swedish labels ABSOLUT VODKA and design duo Skogsberg&Smart have teamed up once again to create the next generation of their much publicized new limited edition crystal bottles crafted by centuries old Swedish glassmaker Reijmyre .
Last year's collaboration:

The new 2011 hand-blown, hand-cut and hand-engraved bottle design, the 'Pinstripe Bottle', is inspired by the heritage of Savile Row's iconic pinstripe tailoring.
The bottle, which comes in clear crystal or black crystal, is presented in an exclusive handmade treasure chest along with two matching tumblers. Each one is numbered and signed by the master crafter following approval.
Only 800 of the clear crystal bottles and a very limited number of the black crystal bottles -only 10- have been made and are priced at $1500 and $10,000 respectively.
