Absolut Pears was launched in 2007 with a two month "New Temptation" digital campaign, based around the shapely pear being more tempting than a plain round apple. This was the first pear-flavoured vodka and the bottle design incorporates the shape of the fruit into its design.
Absolut's previous flavoured line extensions were as follows:
1986 -Absolut Peppar (chilli pepper flavour)
1988 - Absolut Citron (lemon flavour)
1992 - Absolut Kurant (blackcurrant flavour)
1999 - Absolut Mandrin (orange flavour)
2003 - Absolut Vanilia (vanilla flavour)
2004 - Absolut Raspberri (raspberry flavour)
2005 - Absolut Apeach (peach flavour)
2006 - Absolut Ruby Red (grapefruit flavour)

Pungent and perfume-like. Unctuous pear.
Clean, intense ripe pear with delicate floral notes and assertive peppery spice.
Long lingering perfumed pear and white pepper spice.
Dry, pungent and intensely flavoured. Somewhat perfume-like.
