Anyone with a love for spirits or an eye for home décor, for that matter, will have seen Absolut Elyx‘s eye-catching copper owl drinking vessels making the rounds around social media, introduced in Hong Kong earlier this year with special themed cocktails at some of the city’s best bars including VEA, Red Sugar and Potato Head. With the owl following in the footsteps of the copper pineapple and flamingo in the vodka brand’s line of glamorous copper barware, Absolut Elyx has decided to spread a bit of festive cheer this month with the launch of its first ever Elyx Boutique in Asia, stocked with an array of limited edition copper merchandise.

Absolut Elyx’s copper barware range from cocktail shakers to bar spoons and copper cups.

Copper isn’t just an aesthetic choice for the brand: The element is in fact essential to Absolut’s centuries-old history of vodka craftsmanship, with the premium product still to this day distilled in a 1921 copper rectification called Column 51, made entirely of copper. Of course, the copper merchandise itself makes for a fabulous accent for your at-home holiday spread, with decorative copper barware, cups and other merchandise adding a bit of glam and sparkle to your table. The wide-eyed copper owl is an iconic gift to take home, while other beautifully designed vessels include the copper pineapple (HK$799), the new limited edition “Felix the Gnome” cocktail cup (HK$799, only 99 available in Hong Kong), and other festive memorabilia such as gnome cufflinks and copper cocktail sets, all available at Elyx Boutique until stocks run out. All the gifts come in beautiful festive gift boxes, making for the perfect holiday gift for the spirits aficionado in your life, or for treating yourself to your own signature Absolut cocktails at home.

In addition to shopping the line of Absolut Elyx’s copper barware at the two-storey boutique, guests can also participate in a series of pairing and experiential workshops all month, including cocktail-making workshops, vodka masterclasses, and even hair and makeup parties and Instagram photo workshops to get into the holiday spirit. Get hands-on crafting the perfect cocktail with Absolut Elyx and take an inside look at the craftsmanship and attention to detail that goes into every bottle of the premium vodka.
