- A US$1 Million Collection of Five Luxury Spirits Bottles
LONDON, March 27 /CNW/ - Bombay Sapphire, the world's leading premium
gin, has inspired three prominent names in luxury and design - Baccarat,
Garrard and Karim Rashid - to create Revelation, five handmade crystal bottles
individually decorated with sapphires and diamonds, priced at US$200,000 each.
Recognised around the world for its striking translucent blue bottle,
Bombay Sapphire has showcased the world's finest glass creations for the last
20 years. The Bombay Sapphire Prize is the world's biggest annual glass award
and the Bombay Sapphire Designer Glass Competition is one of the top design
contests for emerging designers.
Created by one of the hottest designers in the world today, Karim Rashid,
each of the five Revelation bottles has been handcrafted in France by
Baccarat, the pre-eminent creator of the world's finest luxury crystal. The
bottle has been cut into the shape of a giant gemstone with 10 principal
facets, representing the 10 botanical ingredients used to create the complex
and refined taste of Bombay Sapphire. Each Revelation bottle is truly unique
with its own individually designed stopper decorated with sapphires and
diamonds set by the oldest jewellery house in the world, Garrard.
Reflecting the global popularity of Bombay Sapphire, the limited edition
Revelation bottles will be launched at five major international airport
locations - starting with London Heathrow airport on March 27th, to coincide
with the opening of the new terminal five, and subsequently New York, Dubai,
Singapore and Sydney. One Revelation bottle will be exhibited at each of the
five international airports for two to three months before being securely
transported to its new owner anywhere in the world.
Profits from Revelation will benefit the travel retail industry's chosen
charity, The Smile Train, which provides life-enhancing cleft surgery to
children in poor countries.
