The Jewel within the Gin

Alice has developed ten green bottles featuring ten Temperley prints especially for Gordon’s Gin. Taking from the print work of our in house design team the most striking elements from this season’s printed scarves and dresses. These bottles are available in stores now.

As well as taking over the labels of the signature  bottles Alice worked closely with her old family friend, glass artist, John Reyntiens to create a set of stunning stained glass windows to commemorate the truly British collaboration. Fresh from installing HM the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Window in Westminster Hall John worked with Alice to reimagine the iconic Gordon’s Gin bottle suspended in vibrant stained glass panes. Sealed inside each bottle is a different piece from the Temperley archives from medals to jewels and embellished birds, each visible through a lens cut from the front of each green bottle. Using traditional techniques Alice worked in John’s studio using a Temperley colour palette to create the opulent pieces which will be displayed throughout our Bruton Street Flagship for the collaboration launch party which also marks the stores first anniversary!
