It’s time to be part of an Absolut Karnival party people! 😉


Absolut proudly announces Absolut Karnival, a passion fruit and orange blossom-flavoured limited edition vodka that captures the transformative energy of a carnival. Featuring artwork by Brazilian graphic novel artist and writer Rafael Grampá who has worked on iconic Marvel brands such as Batman, X-Men, and The Avengers, Absolut Karnival will be teaming up with Grampá on its new Transform Today campaign.


Extending his creative collaboration with the brand, Grampá will bring unique and colourful visions of Latin America’s most transformative celebration to the iconic Absolut bottle. Perfect for one another the combination of the rich, smooth, fresh and tropical flavour of Absolut Karnival and Grampá’s festive dynamic, character-driven design will exude the magic of carnivals, reminding everyone that life is full of endless possibilities.

Absolut Karnival

“When Absolut asked me to collaborate on Absolut Karnival, I saw it as an opportunity to express my love of a festival that lets everyone be free and equal,” says Rafael Grampá. “In a carnival, everyone celebrates together. There is a beautiful, unique and uncontrollable feeling that our differences can be put behind us. We become aware of our own power to change ourselves and the world.”

“To evoke something of that in the bottle design, I knew it had to be colourful and cheerful. In the Carnival parade, normal people transform themselves into extraordinary things. I decided to try to represent that sense of transformation by putting the Carnival parade right onto the bottle,” says Grampá.


Changing things up, the Absolut Karnival Party will be a breath of fresh air for party goers! Event details are as follows:
