Designed by Douglas Fraser | Country: Canada

Absolut will be donating up to $120,000 towards the Vancouver arts community through proceeds from the sale of this new limited edition bottle. Local artist Douglas Fraser shares his rationale behind the design.

”It’s about contemporary urban living set in a crown of snow capped mountains, driftwood and steel, high rise condos and quaint neighbourhoods. Vancouver represents the spirit and the idea of the west, where the sun rises over the mountains and sets into the ocean. The citizens believe in playing hard. Work happens in the ports, and glass towers, and life is all about balance west coast style.”

    Wonderful! I’m a friend of Doug’s and always love seeing his work out in the wild.

    If you look really close you’ll see “F R A S E R” at the bottom of the V. And if you go to http://www.AbsolutVancouver.ca, you can vote for one of five finalists who will receive $120k towards an Absolut Vancouver art project. I’m one of the happy finalists!
