Jet Set Jungle is a newly released bottle of wine as collaboration with the company Barrel + Ink, which pairs designers and winemakers together to create limited edition works of art. I was paired with winemaker Pax Mahle for a bold and wild red wine unlike anything I'd ever had in wine before!
This wine feels like an abundant harvest, full of unique and rich possibilities. In that way, I designed my label to be a surprise-- part leopard, part tiger, and full of energy bursting out of the bottle!
Jet Set Jungle is described by Barrel + Ink as follows:
This unruly red truly captures Pax’s experimental spirit. Jet Set Jungle is crazy aromatic and smells of blackberries, blueberries, pomegranate, and lingonberries. Despite the juicy, fruit-filled, and candied nose, the palate is crisply acidic, and it’s a red that’s intended to be served lightly chilled. Illustrator Meg Hunt captured the verve of this wine with her untamed, barbarous representation of ‘wildness bottled.'
