With the change of season comes the finale in our Archie Rose X Horisumi limited edition gin collaboration, inspired by the work of Japanese-style tattoo artist Kian Forreal (Horisumi). On March 1 we will release 100 very special collections, including an exquisite A2 print depicting each original, uncropped, hand-illustrated Horisumi label from the series plus four full-sized 700ml bottles of Horisumi Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer gins. The brilliant limited-edition Horisumi artworks took Kian a combined 100 hours to complete, and are now combined into one print using luxuriously textured paper stock, each individually numbered from 1-100.
Each handcrafted gin was inspired by Kian’s illustrations of the four seasons in Japan. Autumn saw the spice-driven notes of red miso, sesame seed and sansho pepper make for a complex, savoury gin, while winter incorporated the maritime salinity of Tasmanian kombu, the herbaceous sweetness of Australian Fuji apples and the infusion of two Japanese green teas - sencha and genmaicha. Spring was one of our favourites with chrysanthemum offering notes of white musk, herbaceous and citric accents from Australian-grown yuzu leaf and the subtle sweetness of fresh red shiso, while summer was playful and aromatic thanks to white peach, yuzu peel, kumquat and mandarin.
Please note the four bottles will be shipped in a standard Archie Rose six-pack case for protection.
The poster will be shipped separately in an unmarked tube for protection.
