Stars to sample gin from Brit-etched bottles
East Lothian distiller NB Gin is marking its third year as a drinks partner at the Brits by serving music’s biggest stars from hand-etched bottles created by a local designer.
Co-founder of NB Gin, Viv Muir is delighted with the eye-catching designs by professional glassware designer Lydia Macdonald.
“To be a drinks partner of the BRITS after-party three years in a row is fantastic,” said Ms Muir.
“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 after party and we’ll be giving away some to our lucky fans on social media.”
The one-off designs take approximately two hours per bottle to etch.
Ms Macdonald works from her home studio in Pencaitland, East Lothian, and has produced designs for many A-list clients, including a hand-etched jug for a Royal wedding.
She has also worked with the likes of Chef Michael Smith, House of Bruar and Johnstons of Elgin.
NB Gin was launched by lawyers Viv and Steve Muir from North Berwick in 2013.
