Ballantineâ€™s latest limited-edition release with visual artist Shawna X celebrates positivity and community spirit
To spread a splash of joy, color, and positivity around the world in these challenging times, the No. 1 Scotch whisky brand in Europe Ballantineâ€™s has teamed up with New York-based visual artist Shawna X to release a new limited-edition bottle.
Shawna X is at the forefront of a rising generation of multi-faceted visual artists, known for her vibrant and colorful style and collaborations with the likes of Nike, Spotify, The New Yorker, and her recent re-interpretation of the Oscars statue. Staying true to her style and ethos of invoking positivity through her artwork, Shawna X has now applied her signature splash of color onto Ballantineâ€™s iconic Finest bottle. â€œI was tapping into the feeling of joy being with a community of people who I connect to, have fun with, and am vulnerable with and supportive to, especially after the past year of isolation,â€ says Shawna. â€œThe connection is vibrant and colorful.â€
The partnership of Ballantineâ€™s and Shawna also extends to artistic communities around the world, helping in the recovery of various nightlife scenes through murals created by Shawna and local artists.
â€œI want artists in each community to have artistic freedom to express their version of community and joy. I think artists and creative communities may be more outspoken about staying true, but I want this sentiment to vibrate through all of humanity,â€ she added.
The colorful bottle contains the same multi-awarded blended Scotch whisky that Ballantineâ€™s Finest is known for.
You can get the limited-edition Ballantineâ€™s Finest Shawna X bottle at all S&R branches this April for only P449. Online site www.boozy.ph retails it at P579.
