Customer Success Stories
Temperature-Sensitive Promotional Label for Absolut Vodka
Absolut® created a promotional label that drove consumers to their website. The label needed to stick to the bottle during transportation and withstand freezing conditions while holding promotional value.
Most consumers store their vodka in the freezer. Therefore, a label that could be applied to the bottle and reveal a code when a certain temperature is reached would certainly be interactive and attract attention. The individual code would be entered into their campaign website. The consumer would be eligible for prizes and the Absolut® marketing research team would receive valuable information about their customers.
1.3 million labels were produced and delivered to the Absolut® manufacturing facility. The project was rolled out for promotional marketing purposes.
Global case shipments jumped 9%, and Absolut® gained market share in the crowded and increasingly competitive U.S. market – no easy task for a mature brand trying to fend off an
ever-expanding pool of upstarts.

Distribution and retailers now look at the labels and quickly determine if there has been a temperature excursion during transit that could affect product quality. In addition, the Freshness Monitors help communicate the importance of maintaining proper temperatures to everyone in
the supply chain.
