Summer is marked in Portland, OR by the start of the annual Portland Rose Festival. Growing up, I anxiously awaited the parades, boat shows and the highly-contested school rose contests. As I grew older, roses followed my journey throughout the city— at my high school and my first job at the local pool located in one of Portland’s many rose gardens.
This design was inspired by Portland, officially dubbed The City Of Roses, and the style of rose tattoos seen so commonly throughout the city. I created two bottles of gin, and branded glasses and coasters to enjoy them with. The gin comes in a gift box with two glasses and five Portland-inspired cocktail recipe cards.
