I was given the exclusive to write this first ever announcement in the San Francisco Chronicle on Sunday May 29th, 2011. It was very hard to keep this secret, because I like sharing secrets. (It's not gossip; it's journalism.)

As you can see, the text of the story is embargoed for a  couple of days so if you want to know more you'll have to pick up the physical paper today or wait until the embargo is lifted. You can also buy a digital copy of the newspaper to read the story at this link

The official press release from Absolut will follow on Tuesday.

Grape, dragonfruit and papaya. I get it. Those flavors just scream San Francisco!


I notice that you don't really comment on the product itself. How is it? Is there anything that one can really do with it in the bar, or is it just yet-another-flavored-vodka?

Evan, I haven't actually tried it yet; just reporting the news. I think if I were a bartender in SF I'd try to find a way to make it work!


Can't wait to try it out, thanks for the write-up :)
