July 1, 2021 — BOMBAY SAPPHIRE has announced a partnership with Los Angeles-based artist Steven Harrington, who has designed a new Limited Edition BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® bottle now available for sale, to add Harrington’s signature psychedelic-pop style to bar carts everywhere.
Renowned for his whimsical graphic illustrations, Harrington’s first ever design for BOMBAY SAPPHIRE features a vibrant collage of motifs, including the artist’s signature palm tree characters. On track to be the first major gin brand to be made with 100% sustainably sourced botanicals, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE vapor-infused botanicals are featured in artful illustrations, as well as the iconic BOMBAY SAPPHIRE blue bottle, its signature gin and tonic cocktails, plus paint splashes and artist palettes, as a nod to the brand’s longstanding ties with creativity.
This marks the second artist-designed Limited Edition bottle for BOMBAY SAPPHIRE, following on from the inaugural Limited Edition designed by Hebru Brantley released in July 2020. Artist Hebru Brantley, a long-term collaborator of BOMBAY SAPPHIRE, nominated Steven Harrington to design this latest edition.
“We’re delighted to be collaborating with Steven Harrington for the new BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Artist Limited Edition Bottle, who is revered for his joyful, contemporary pop-art aesthetic. With his uplifting visions inspired by the Californian landscape, passion for sustainability and thriving mix of cultures, fused with our all-natural elements of our gin, we thought his design was the perfect fit to grace shelves just in time for summer entertaining. We hope it becomes a beloved collector’s item for gin and art fans alike” said Jaime Keller, North America Brand Director for BOMBAY SAPPHIRE gin.
As artist Steven Harrington explains, “My work is all about connections; connections that transcend time and space. This creative collaboration with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE has enabled me to redesign the iconic bottle which I’m thrilled about, and apply some of my signature motifs in a way that’s organic for the brand, capturing its all-natural, botanical edge and support of the arts.”
The Limited Edition BOMBAY SAPPHIRE bottle by Steven Harringtonis available nationwide from July 1 and online at ReserveBar.
