Bombay Sapphire is launching its first artist-designed bottle. The brand collaborated with Chicago-based artist Hebru Brantley, who brought his street art and Afro-Futurist influences to the design of the bottle. An extension of Bombay’s “Stir Creativity” campaign, the launch of Hebru Brantley Limited Edition will benefit the Chicago chapter of the Black Lives Matter organization. It is available now in select states and on Reserve Bar, retailing for a suggested $23 a 750-ml.
