The bottle is emblazoned with artwork by Brazilian graphic novelist Rafael Grampá, whose character-driven design aims to evoke the magic of carnival.

It will initially be exclusive to Selfridges from January 25, with an rrp of £34.99.  

Pernod Ricard UK’s marketing controller Adam Boita said: “Grampá’s work is is disruptive, lively and authentic and as a native of Brazil he has experienced the transformative potential of Carnival first-hand his entire life.”
