Bring Out The Imp!

IMG_4199

This new Imperial Stout by the fantastic, Livingstone based company, Alechemy Brewing has just been launched featuring a specially commissioned drawing by me!

This label was so much fun to draw with the design brief being “make it twisted, gnarly, impish and a little bit terrifying…. Just like the beer”. My mind immediately harked back to one of my favourite illustrators Arthur Rackham and all the Rip Van Winkle illustrations that had fascinated me as a child. A dream brief!

The bottle reads: “A 10.5% imperial stout brewed with molasses, liquorish and oatmeal. It is fermented with a Belgian yeast and aged for 3 months in 55 year old whisky casks.”

Sounds incredible, tastes amazing and certainly lives up to its name. Not to be taken lightly!
