ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jean-Michel Basquiat is a cultural icon and prolific artist who became a defining force in the New York City art scene in the 1980s. He has created a global legacy through his iconic style and the social commentary behind his work which has greatly influenced modern and contemporary art. Drawing inspiration from Jean Michel Basquiat’s time in Los Angeles, the Special Edition bottle features his Untitled (L.A Painting), a masterpiece influenced by the surrounding remote environment of Venice Beach where Basquiat found security and solitude away from the distractions in New York. Exhibited in Basquiat’s second ever show, the piece features many of the key motifs that are associated with his work: the crown, the bird, the coin and the skull which are all beautifully collaged over soft hues of blue. Through the social commentary behind his graffiti inspired artwork, Jean Michel created a global legacy and has greatly influenced modern and contemporary art.

BOMBAY is on a mission: It seeks to be the most sustainable global gin. And it’s well on its way! In FY22, it became the first major gin brand to have all 10 of its botanical ingredients sourced from 100% sustainably certified suppliers. And to celebrate the local farmers and suppliers it works with in the Spanish region of Murcia—with whom it has maintained a close, decades-long relationship.
When it comes to consumable goods, the world has for a long time deemed plastic a necessary evil of sorts. Leave it to Bacardi to prove it’s straight-up unnecessary. For the 2021 holiday season, the spirits company unveiled innovative new 100% plastic-free gift pack designs for a number of its iconic brands. In total, Bacardi cut the plastic in its gift packs by 50%, which meant 147 tons of single-use plastic didn’t go to landfills. But Bacardi isn’t stopping there. It now aims to hit its goal of removing 100% of all single-use plastic from its gift packs and point-ofsale materials by the end of 2023.
