Absolut Vodka may soon be giving New Yorkers a taste of Brooklyn.
According to The Daily News, the vodka maker enlisted the help of Brooklyn-raised director Spike Lee to create a new spirit.
The one-liter bottle features a brownstone apartment on the label, with a number from Lee's childhood home in Cobble Hill. And in celebration of the Big Apple, it's flavored with red apple and ginger.
The paper says the bottles will hit stores this week, and will cost $24.99 each.
The News says as part of the campaign, Absolut will give back to the borough – donating $50,000 for affordable housing in Bedford-Stuyvesant.http://www.ny1.com/content/top_stories/118966/absolut-to-reportedly-unveil-brooklyn-vodka
