12ozprophet_damien_hirst_bottle-664x487 After literally stumbling upon a new promotion for the Kaws-designed Hennessy bottle this morning, we just found out about another artist collaboration. The UK newspaper The Independent published photos of a limited edition box and bottle label for a 20-year-old Somerset Cider Brandy designed by one of the most controversial, and successful artists in the world, Damien Hirst! The collaboration came about thanks in large part to the fashion designer Alice Temperley, a friend of the artist and daughter of distillery owner Julian Temperley. This collaboration celebrates a particular distinction the spirit won last month, receiving PGI status (Protected Geographical Indication) from the European Union. Only 500 bottles of the Hirst-bottled cider brandy will be sold, with 10 being auctioned off for charities including a South African orphanage. Source: The Independent
