Check out Bombay Sapphire’s upcoming North American initiative, Create From Home. The new online platform aims to help people explore their inner creativity during this unprecedented time of self-isolation — Having launched a couple days ago, Create From Home comes on the heels of Bacardi Limited’s global campaign #RaiseYourSpirits, which pledged $3 million in financial aid to support the hospitality industry debilitated by the COVID-19 shutdown. In support of healthcare professionals and the local community, Bombay Sapphire is also announcing today that it will be shifting operations to produce hand sanitizer from its home distillery in Laverstoke Mill, UK.
During these uncertain times of social distancing, Bombay remains as committed as ever to its mission of inspiring and empowering communities to discover the creative possibilities within. To help avoid going stir crazy, Bombay Sapphire is inspiring, and offering the tools for everyone to ‘stir creativity’ with Create From Home — a multi-platform learning experience that offers online classes, workshops, and cocktail-making sessions led by notables and influencers from diverse fields. It incorporates design, art, education, cocktail, and creativity, with most live-streamed as a way to reconnect with ourselves and help support one another through the power of creativity.
The program consists of integrated partnerships with three digital platforms:
Skillshare, in partnership with Bombay Sapphire, is providing unlimited complimentary 3-month memberships and live Q&A’s to everyone with some of their most popular teachers through their subscription-based online learning community.
Society6, a leading online marketplace for artists from around the globe, will host weekly video-based “Drink and Draw” event, where participants will receive an interactive tutorial from a S6 artist and a bartender to design a gin cocktail inspired by their artwork (cocktail sets via Drizly here)
Hunker, the creative DIY home projects platform, will launch a Create-From-Home hub with a library of content and IG tutorials and interviews with creative influencers who work and create from home.
