Spiritual Revelation

What happens when the world’s most renowned producer of gin teams up with an internationally acclaimed artist, a prestigious British jewelry house, and the preeminent creator of crystal? They produce a million-dollar collection of decanters christened Revelation. Gin maker Bombay Sapphire collaborated with New York artist Karim Rashid, Baccarat, and Garrard  jewelry house to produce the five-bottle collection—priced at $200,000 apiece. Each bottle has been shaped into a 10-sided gemstone to represent the 10 botanical ingredients used to create Bombay Sapphire gin and is appointed with a diamond-and-sapphire encrusted stopper. The Revelation bottles, sold with a year’s supply of gin, will be on display at airports in London, New York, Dubai, Singapore, and Sydney beginning March 27, before being sold to aficionados willing to pay one-fifth of a million dollars to house their gin in luxury.
