A selection of illustrations I created for Beefeater Gin, "London Spirit" book.
Collaborating with Edinburgh based Contagious, the book unfolds the history, versatility, global appeal, and future of gin.
The book is a homage to the spirit of London and celebration of Beefeater as a London Icon.
More information from Beefeater Gin about the project:
"To celebrate 200 years of distilling heritage, dating back to 1820, Beefeater has teamed up with Joel Harrison and Neil Ridley, of World’s Best Spirits fame, to capture Beefeater’s history and vibrant future in a limited-edition coffee table book. Reflecting the quality and craftmanship synonymous with the World’s Most Awarded Gin1, the book contains exclusive insights from Master Distiller, Desmond Payne MBE, stillmen from the Beefeater Distillery in the heart of London, brand ambassadors and influential customers who have helped shaped the brand’s past, present and future.
The book also explores the social, cultural, and contemporary surrounds of London Dry Gin, celebrating Beefeater as a constant within a landscape of contrast and change, telling an urban London story with all the swagger and diversity that goes with it. A look at what shapes, influences and impacts gin as we know it today is also included, from a Friday night dancefloor to a Monday morning distillery floor. "
