I love the idea of creating your own flavoured liquor. Our good Martin brews his own wine and develops his own flavoured gins and, in this case … rum.
(I have to admit, I am still baffled by this illustration myself!
Picture this! We’d been invited to Martin and Michelle’s for a party; much wine was drunk and then the move was made to various flavours of Martin’s home brew wines and liquors.
A heady mix of alcohol and then a stagger to bed … when I woke, which was early, I was the only one awake.
So, I drew this flavoured rum which Martin had been toting around!
I have to admit it was partly because of the stoppered, tap bottle (Which I have not been able to source anywhere!)
But the fact is, that this mysterious illustration was the morning after A Night Before!
I’m still baffled by how I managed to pull this off! Combining fineline ink, biro and watercolour …. and all before breakfast!
Somedays, I guess we’re just on fire!
We stayed over at some friends’ last weekend. Martin has rediscovered his passion for home brewing; producing a wild variety of wines (Tea, Brussel Sprout anyone?). He’s also started flavouring other drinks…
First of all can I just say that I LOVE this bottle! I just had to draw it!
It’s about he same height as a regular bottle, but with that neat, little tap at the bottom (Handy!). The evening before we’d all had a shot of Martin’s flavoured rum; he’d used strawberries and other summer fruits and, BOY!, was it delicious.
(Pssst …. by the way …. if you know where I can get such a bottle I would be very grateful 🙂
