Stir your cocktail creativity this summer with sippable artworks from leading gin brand, Bombay Sapphire

The world’s number one premium gin, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE, is shaking it up this summer and bringing sippable cocktail art to a bar near you, by partnering with popular visual artist, Ellen Porteus.

As part of the ‘Stir Creativity’ campaign, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE has commissioned one of Australia’s most in-demand artists, Ellen Porteus, to use cocktails as a canvas and create bespoke cocktail garnishes, inspired by Bombay Sapphire, Bombay Bramble and Bombay Sunset.

Porteus’ sippable artworks will be available for a limited time only at venues across Australia via a ‘pop up’ BOMBAY SAPPHIRE cocktail menu during Summer 2021/22.

During the pandemic, the arts and hospitality industries and those who work within them faced intense hardships, so to support and give back, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE will be donating $1 per cocktail sold over the summer to two charities within each industry. The chosen charities are hospitality enterprise, Tip Jar, and the Arts Project Australia. With both industries needing community support, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE encourages Australians to head down to their local bars and visit their favourite bartenders this summer as a way of giving back.

“This has been such a fun project to work on! Out of all the canvases I’ve used in the past, I’ve got to say a cocktail is one of the most imaginative. I’ve loved bringing BOMBAY SAPPHIRE’S flavours to life through my designs. I’m proud to be partnering with Arts Project Australia and Tip Jar Fund to give back to the creative community on this project. I’m so excited to see Australians returning to bars this summer and I hope they enjoy my artwork while they’re sipping on their cocktails!” said Porteus.

Bacardi-Martini Australia Brand Ambassador Georgie Mann said: “Creating cocktails is an art within itself, so collaborating with visual artist, Ellen Porteus on these bespoke cocktail garnishes connects to Bombay Sapphire’s core, as there is finesse and craftsmanship in everything we do”.

“We’re so proud that through these beautiful sippable artworks we’ll be giving back to two really important charities. The pandemic has been tough for the hospitality and creative industries so we want to help our on-premise partners get back trading with this initiative and give back to people who really need it.”

BOMBAY SAPPHIRE launched the ‘Stir Creativity’ campaign in 2018, as a call to arms for everyone to engage with their creativity and unlock their creative potential. From programs including The World’s Most Imaginative Bartender competition, to hosting The Glasshouse Project, a global advocacy program, bringing together the world’s top bartenders, in a series of creative workshops designed to push the boundaries of cocktail creativity.

BOMBAY SAPPHIRE, the world’s number one premium gin, is created with a unique combination of 10 botanical ingredients sourced from around the globe. Crafted in Hampshire, England, using the signature distillation process called vapour infusion, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE perfectly captures the natural, aromatic flavours of each botanical which results in the gin’s fresh, bright taste.
