SO WHY THE NAME ‘BLACK LINES’?
Inspired by Russian painter Kandinsky’s approach to art, Black Lines chose to name themselves after one of his most famous paintings. Boundary pushing, pioneering and different, Kandinsky’s work started a new era of art. Black Lines have followed his example to inspire their innovative take on cocktails, bringing great mixes to herald a new era of drinking. Black Lines like to stay true to their namesake and this year went the extra mile and commissioned nine young artists to turn their drinks into artwork. Armed with a brief to interpret Black Lines drinks from their taste, character, appearance, ingredients and history, the nine artists drew on their different references and techniques to create distinctive and beautiful ways to talk about each of the cocktails in the range.
With the right ingredients, the tightest of processes and careful refinement, pre-batched cocktails can be as good as, if not better than, their handmade counterparts. Bottled cocktails, made without compromise. That’s why with Black Lines, you’ll find simple, balanced serves made with the best ingredients in the market and spirits from Britain’s most exceptional distilleries, all made by a team who love a good cocktail.
