The combination of gin and art seems somewhat far-fetched, but not for Bombay Sapphire . They love to challenge, to stir creativity , create noise and above all art. You can also see that at the distillery in Laverstoke Mill in Hampshire. It looks more like a glass architectural work than a part of a factory. The idea of ​​putting twelve artists and artists in one empty and blank space and giving them the assignment to transform an empty canvas into a living work of art, is not so far-fetched and certainly special. And everything could be used: ceiling, floor, walls and furniture. Last July this artwork was created in the London district of Shoreditch. The name of the complete project as well as the space was a logical one: Canvas . With this expression Bombay Sapphire wanted to present a fully interactive experience and a celebration of international cocktail creativity. That has succeeded.


How his works ultimately come to see is never certain. The air, the space, the surface, the pressure of the extinguisher: Rutger never has the final result under control. "No work is the same. That is crazy and sometimes frustrating, but I learn a lot from this way of working ', he explains. 'The perfect work does not exist, but that is not what I strive for. Every work is unique. '

The final result of Canvas Amsterdam can be seen from 11 to 13 October . Go along & stir your creativity !
