16 August, 2011

Absolut is using iPads in selected Tesco stores to demonstrate the versatility of its vodka range.

The devices will be installed in display units from this week and will be loaded with the Drinkspiration app, offering over 3,000 drink ideas with cocktail imagery and video demonstrations for consumers to browse.
