Kaleido, by Selfridges

Kaleido is on a mission to revamp salad. Wrapping fresh ingredients with thin, transparent rice paper, the brand creates colourful and inventive salad rolls, that are ‘as healthy as a salad, as playful as sushi and as convenient as a sandwich’, says founder Laura Mimoun. The gluten free rice paper (only 30 kcals), allows Kaleido to create enticing displays full of flavour – with vegetarian and vegan options available, hand prepared every morning in Kaleido’s Bermondsey kitchen in south London.

Porter’s Gin unveils new bottle designs

Porter’s Gin has unveiled a new design. To revamp the branding and logo they have collaborated with design agency Stranger & Stranger, creating a contemporary, botanical-focused design with the aim of representing the light and refreshing style of their cold-distilled gin. The brand’s logo – a rotary evaporator – is imprinted on the neck of the green bottle which is stoppered with cork and a wooden lid. The illustrated botanicals on the labels reflect the ingredients; ‘The Modern Classic Gin’ features Buddha’s hand citrus and juniper while the ‘Tropical Old Tom Gin’ has the guava and passion fruit artwork.

Amass Dry Gin Los Angeles

Dry Gin Los Angeles, by Amass

When it comes to gin, the US isn’t historically as well versed compared to its transatlantic counterparts. However, a new distillery from downtown Los Angeles is turning past conceptions upside down. Self-branded as the world’s first ‘nomadic’ distillery, Amass produces small-batch releases in collaboration with the world’s top independent distillers. Its latest dry gin is LA born and bred: ultra clean and gluten free, Dry Gin Los Angeles captures a spectrum of local flavours from 29 native botanicals including Hibiscus, Cardamom, Cacao and Kaffir Lime Leaf. Ranging from earthy base tones to bright citrus top notes, this premium release well captures the region’s eclectic ingredient palette.
