The week in pictures
This week in the world of drinks: Treasury Wine Estates hosts beach clean in North Devon, BrewDog launches The Lost Forest – an urban wilderness serving waste-free cocktails, and Glenmorangie unveils an eye-catching floral limited edition bottle.
Treasury Wine Estate has underlined its commitment to reducing plastic pollution in the world’s oceans by hosting a beach clean at Saunton Sands in North Devon, in partnership with not-for-profit Plastic Oceans Europe.
The beach clean was fronted by Treasury’s on-trade exclusive Coastal Reserve wine range.
BrewDog Distilling Co has unveiled The Lost Forest – a month-long urban wilderness in Covent Garden decked out with lush greenery. Waste-free cocktails are served as part of London Cocktail Week, using the brand’s burgeoning spirits portfolio.
Live DJs will add to the festival atmosphere.
Glenmorangie is launching a limited edition bottle this autumn that celebrates the brand’s 18-year-old whisky’s fragrant bouquet with an eye-catching floral bottle.
Botanical sculptor Azuma Makoto collaborated with Glenmorangie on the project, comparing the whisky’s floral notes to a blooming flower in an arresting visual display that will premiere at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea until 30 September.
Scottish family business Glencairn Crystal sponsored this year’s McIlvanney Prize for the Scottish Crime Book of the Year. The winners were presented with a trophy by CEO and founder of Glencairn, Raymond Davidson.
