THE LIVING GALLERY BY
In November 2018 we worked with Bombay Sapphire New Zealand and invited people to indulge their inner artist and unleash their creativity at a Auckland's first ever cocktail art experience - The Living Gallery.
Guests experienced an avant-garde art gallery with exclusive cocktails, dreamed up by bartenders from some of the best bars across New Zealand, incorporated into each display by The Concept.
An interactive mural by artist Harris Keenan, inspired by the world of Bombay Sapphire, evolved over the week as visitorsadded their own personal touch, helping transform the space while enjoying the taste of exquisite cocktails.
Four of New Zealand's best cocktail bars; Parasol & Swing in Auckland; Bedford Soda & Liquor, also in Auckland; Yonder in Queenstown and Forresters Lane in Wellington, were tasked with creating the unique Bombay Sapphire cocktails, with each one incorporating a sensory element.
The carefully crafted cocktails include a martini that pays homage to the iconic flavours of Italy and a gimlet influenced by the smell of New Zealand pine, which was served from an aroma art installation where guests could experience the layers of the drink through scent, as if in a parfumerie.
