One Monday morning in November, as the rain poured down on Upper Street, 11 of London’s finest and most colourful bartenders met at Zilouf’s, in Islington, for a photoshoot with renowned photographer Theo Chalmers.
Last year the Giffard Spirit of Art brought back some stunning work for the Menthe Pastille brand, created by painters in the late 19th and early 20th century. This year we wanted to explore the Spirit of Art in the early 21st century and the images captured by Theo are absolutely stunning. In 2014, the bartenders have become both the artist and the canvas.
Over the next few weeks we will be posting the new Giffard Spirit of Art across social media, one shot at a time.
We hope you enjoy the collection as much as we enjoyed creating it.
