Genever 'a gin-like spirit' (Vintage Original Drinks Playing Card)

This product is unavailable

For UK delivery only at present (if any of our lovely customers in the US or worldwide are interested, please get in touch to discuss a bespoke commission). 

A specially framed, vintage-original playing card depicting a bottle of genever from the historic Van hoorebeke distillery in Belgium. Sometimes described as the ancestor to modern gin, genever can only be made in Belgium or Holland and is uniquely a mixture of a botanically infused neutral spirit and malt wine (tasting malty, like a light whisky). 

Set in an oat mount with a burnt orange accent border and the special addition of a linen slip for texture and depth (a second frame made bespoke to sit within the main gold leaf bamboo frame). This layering helps anchors the eye, drawing it into the artwork - and gives the frame a lovely weighty feel. 

Glazed with anti-reflective glass (Artglass) for wonderfully clear viewing as well as UV protection. 

There are other original drinks cards available in this series (framed to the same size on the wall), so pairs or larger sets could be purchased if desired.
