Hand-etched bottles mark NB gin link with Brits after-show party

14 February, 2017

NB gin has produced a series of hand-etched bottles to mark a three-year association with the Brit Awards.

The bottles will be used to pour drinks for stars attending the official after-show party following next week’s awards in London.

The design features a Brit-inspired B on the front and a “limited edition” message on the side.

The bottles were created by glassware designer Lydia Macdonald at her home studio in Pencaitland in East Lothian. Each one takes two hours to etch.

NB co-founder Viv Muir said: “To be a drinks partner of the Brits after-party three years in a row is fantastic.

“We really wanted to celebrate it in style this year so we decided to etch a limited edition design on to 24 of our bottles.

“A dozen will be served at the party and we’ll be giving away some to our lucky fans on social media.

“In a climate of gin frenzy with so many new brands popping up, NB continues to be the gin of choice for the highest-end events and establishments across the world.” 

To be in with a chance of winning one of the 12 spare bottles follow NB on Twitter or Facebook.
