Acting, writing, and one-woman theatre show sensation, Phoebe Waller-Bridge has unveiled her latest project, having teamed up with Edinburgh Gin to design her own Fleabag-inspired bottle.
The special tipple features a hand-drawn illustration of the show’s creator and star looking into a deep blue Edinburgh night sky. Designed by Waller-Bridge herself, the image features various hidden details all capturing the essence of her hit series, Fleabag.
The imagery also tips its hat in the direction of Edinburgh itself and the role the city played in making it all happen for Waller-Bridge as the location in which she first performed Fleabag at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013.
To that end, the bottle has been designed with artists and performers in mind, as all profits from the sales of the gin will contribute to the arts’ recovery by creating subsidies that will help the next generation of talent to return to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2022.
“I hope every purchase inspires outrageous and creative conversations over ice while bringing the beloved Fringe festival back to life,” said Waller-Bridge. “It’s important to add that Andrew Scott hand wrote a message on the bottle… if that isn’t incentive enough to hunt one down and hold it against your cheek, I don’t know what is.”
The bottles will go on sale via the Edinburgh Gin website on July 20th priced at £48 each. It is then expected to go on general sale from early August.
