Father’s Day is approaching and Brandy de Jerez 1866 wants to offer this year an original and artistic gift in the form of a work of art. To do so, the Osborne-owned brand has teamed up with Swedish artist Emma Lindström to create a work of art that perfectly reflects all the complexity and dynamism behind the aging of 1866 Brandy de Jerez Solera Gran Reserva. The design of this limited edition bottle -which is already on sale on the website for 53.50 €- is inspired by the process of elaboration of 1866 in its 12 years of aging through Fluid Art, the painting technique used by Lindström with which she mixes and transforms the colors in a unique and surprising way.

To carry out this creative process and learn first-hand about the essence of 1866, Lindström visited the Osborne winery in El Puerto de Santa María (Cádiz), where she discovered how this famous brandy is made, as well as working hand in hand with Marcos Alguacil, the brand’s Master Blender. Although Fluid Art and brandy may seem like two opposite worlds, this collaboration has demonstrated a certain parallelism between Emma’s fluid art and the blending of the brandy’s criaderas and soleras system, where liquids, colors and aromas merge in a dynamic and constant movement, which also results in a true work of art.

Getting out of the comfort zone

This collaboration was also a challenge for the Swedish artist, as the work is based on the warm colors of brandy, mainly amber, which are unusual shades in Emma’s work. “This project really inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and explore a completely new color palette. Visiting the winery in El Puerto de Santa Maria, it struck me that there are many similarities between my fluid art style and the handcrafted workmanship of 1866. The fluids move over time, mix, then rest, becoming something new and unique,” explains the artist.

The result has been a bottle and a special packaging that transmits a play of color and textures, perfectly capturing the essence of the brandy and enhancing, even more, those emotions that are produced when tasting a sip of this 1866 Brandy de Jerez Solera Gran Reserva.
