Celebrating Experiences

Spirit Museum in Stockholm, Sweden! Cheers!

Few more days to Christmas! It is celebration time now. I am completely in a festive mood and I am sure so are you. Let me take this opportunity to take you to a unique destination called Spirit Museum, in Stockholm. Cheers to everybody!!

A rainy afternoon in Stockholm

It was a rainy afternoon and was our last day of travel in Stockholm. We were waiting for the rain to stop and were looking at the tourist map and suddenly we found out about this museum. Never before we visited such a museum. The constant urge of exploring something new drives us always. That day too was not an exception.

The museum is about the human experience with alcohol. I find the Absolut Art Collection (Absolut is the third largest brand of alcoholic spirits in the world after Smirnoff and Bacardi) very interesting. It includes almost 850 works by some 500 Swedish and international artists, commissioned by Absolut Vodka between 1986 and 2004. It was produced as part of the brand’s marketing strategy.

Absolut art collection is lively, diverse, at once sophisticated and naive. Different ways to portray a drink is not only interesting to marketers and advertisers, but to anybody who has a creative side and values imagination.

Smelling Absolut Vodka

I enjoyed smelling various flavors of Absolut Vodka. I have never seen before such an arrangement to smell Vodka. It was fun!

Inside the hangover room!

I quite liked the concept of the “hangover room” upstairs, inside the museum. There is a small space, decorated just like someone’s apartment and once you get inside and lock the room, you will hear a drunk woman (recorded voice of course) talking to herself.

I personally liked this museum mainly because of its unique concept. It was fun and entertaining. A rainy afternoon soaked in cocktails was indeed splendid! Have you ever visited such a museum? Isn’t it unique? I will come up with more such places in my next posts.

After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, and that is the most horrible thing in the world. ― Oscar Wilde

Hello. My name is Chirasree. I have been traveling for almost 11 years to places all over the world. I enter into a separate reality during my travels and enjoy the allure of escape from the mundane. I seek beauty through nature and human-made creations. Because beauty is powerful. I seek knowledge. I observe, absorb, and write about the places I visit and the profound realizations and inspirations that each place has to offer.
