Aside from its reputation of crafting premium whisky from age-old recipes, Ballantine’s Scotch Whisky is known for its rich history harking back to the days of prohibition in which the company launched its concealable whisky bottles. Now, 100 years later, the brand is paying tribute to the innovation and adaptability that was born out of the 20s as it calls upon the renowned black and white artist Joshua Vides to collaborate on a speakeasy-themed pop-up in Warsaw.
Situated in the newonce.bar, the pop-up event infuses the ethos of both parties by celebrating the striking cartoon-esque designs of the talented artist as he showcases his sleek reimagining of the brand’s rectangular bottles as well as a speakeasy-style bar, all synonymous with the whisky company’s beginnings. Recruiting a host of community-based creatives including Maciek Konka and Jan Drewicz, the pair are offering visitors a cultural experience infused with hands-on art events where you can screen-print tote bags, workshops and, of course, plenty of alcohol.
With the Warsaw pop-up currently in full swing and the limited-edition black and white Joshua Vides x Ballantine’s bottle available to shop on Amazon now, this is a truly celebratory collaboration that can be enjoyed by liquor and art fanatics alike.
