Beam Global Spirits & Wine has announced the winning bottle design for a limited edition run in the UK of its Hornitos Reposado Tequila brand.
The company said today (25 August) that its UK distributor, Maxxium UK, has been running a competition with body art and tattoo magazine Skin Deep to design a bottle for the Reposado variant. The competition to create the bottle invited the body art community to come up with a tattoo-inspired design that “conveyed the authenticity” of the brand, Maxxium said.
The winning artist (Andi Hopgood) bagged a feature interview in the August issue of Skin Deep to showcase his tattoo talents as well as £3,000 cash to spend. Twenty runners up also received a bottle of 100% agave HORNITOS tequila to savour.
Although i knew the sugar skulls would be popular i decided to do my own twist on them as Tequila is a celebration in itself and partnering it with the day of the dead celebration seemed fitting.......along with traditional old school tattoo roses which I love. - Andi Hopgood
Hornitos will subsequently launch 500 limited edition bottles exclusively in the UK this autumn. The bottle will be available to pour in selected Tequila bars across the country.
