Absolut Elyx : 4.5L Bottle : Broken Seal / Query regarding fill level.
I am based in the UK. I recently purchased a 4.5L Bottle of Absolut Elyx from a Supplier in Germany (as I could not locate any retailers in the UK) as a gift (we are huge fans of your Vodka). The Bottle arrived last week and I was concerned to find that the Copper Strip on the Bottle was Broken! The fill level was also slightly lower than I anticipated. I contacted the Retailer and they informed me the Seal was fine when they shipped the Item and the Fill Level on the bottle is always below the Neck Line. As I have absolutely no way of verifying this (I have only purchased Standard/1 Litre bottles of Absolut Elyx before) please could somebody at Absolut contact me with advise? I have not opened the bottle yet (although I feel somebody has opened it) and I feel slightly uneasy about drinking the Vodka now. What if it has been tampered with? The Retailer will not accept any responsibility. I am surprised that a Bottle of this size (and price) is not sealed more efficiently to protect the contents, and the consumer. I look forward to hearing from you.
