The limited-edition bottles will be on sale from the distillery in Danby Wynd, available to purchase online and from stockists around the region. All products distributed for wholesale during the period will also feature the labels with students receiving a fee per bottle sold. Each label will recognise the artist displaying their name and Instagram handle.

In an effort to increase exposure further, during the sale period, the original artwork will be displayed in the distillery for customers to view.

Liam said: “We are incredibly lucky to have such a great facility on our doorstep. The School is an asset to the region and allows students to develop their creativity, it is vital we do everything we can to promote the talents of the students.”

Olivia Burton, visual arts - faculty leader at The Northern School of Art said: “Working with Revelry Spirits gives our students a fabulous opportunity to realise the relationship between the creative sector and industry. The exercise has increased their commercial awareness and allowed them to understand how their skills align with the workplace.”

The series will take the product into the Christmas sale period when all five of the bottles will be available as part of the festive gift options.
