Entry Description

The Archie Rose X Horisumi is a limited release rare gin series – a collaboration between Sydney based Archie Rose Distilling Co. and acclaimed tattoo artist Horisumi, which celebrates the Japanese seasons. The first in the series – Autumn, tells the story of the Kiku flower and the autumn gift of the fallen maple leaf. Meanwhile, the strong Koi fish makes its way upstream to evolve into the form of a mystical dragon, all captured in Horisumi’s Irezumi tattoo style. The highly graphic label wraps the full circumference of the belly of the bottle to create strong impact on shelf. The vibrant use of colour and deep tones purposely elevate the botanical and rich flavour profile of the gin featured inside. The first 200 lucky buyers received their bottle wrapped in a traditional Japanese Furoshiki style wrap, which are printed on a silk-like fabric with your limited bottle number printed in the corner.
