Is my bottle a fake?


I bought this bottle of Absolut Vodka from a large supermarket chain in Jakarta. It did come with a plastic seal over the lid however I've never seen an Absolut bottle with this kind of red line seal before. The grey LOT number/code has also been scratched off the bottom of the bottle. Does this suggest that the bottle is fake or that it may have been illegally imported?

Thanks for your help.

  • Hi Georgia

    Thank you for reaching out. You are right, plastic wrap over cap and LOT code should not be damaged and removed, so this bottle is unfortunately fake. Thank you for sharing, I will pass this on to the team so that they are aware of this problem.

    Dont hesitate to get back if you got any further questions.

  • Hi Shady

    Its hard to tell without seeing the bottle. But please check following: Numbers on the plastic wrap cap cover and LOT code under the bottle should match. The cap or the plastic wrap should not be damaged.

    Hope that will help you
