After studying Biology in the mainland and gaining a first class degree, Blue Bottle Gin founder Matt spent time at the University of Cambridge to complete a genetic screen on the development of flies. And so our story began…
A summer spent in the basement of the university’s Zoology department working in a laboratory full of Spanish scientists taught Matt a lot of things, including attention to detail, and how surprisingly beautiful flies are. A few years later this observation would play a huge part in the development of Blue Bottle Gin.
It’s been an amazing journey so far, and lately we’ve been reminiscing on how fortunate we’ve been to work with some amazing people who have helped to make our vision a reality, including renowned artist Ed Org.
Ed’s immediate understanding of how we wanted to portray the brand was clear from the beginning, and our blue bottles are now being shipped all around the world. To give our followers some more insight, below is Ed’s original illustration; now locked away in safe keeping somewhere only Matt knows. Isn’t it beautiful?
