Pernod Ricard has recruited film director Baz Luhrmann to design a limited edition, Australia-themed bottle for a spiced orange-flavoured variant of its Absolut vodka brand.

The company said today (25 February) that the bottle, which can be viewed by clicking through on the image on the right, will be available in Australia in a one-litre format from next month. The launch follows Pernod's US release last week of Absolut Texas, the latest expression in the brand's limited edition portfolio in the country.

Absolut Oz will carry a neck tag with story notes, images and recipes for four cocktails created by Luhrmann.

In Pernod's half-year results, released earlier this month, sales of Absolut increased by 4% in value and by 2% in volumes.
