Foxes Bow have joined forces with Dublin-based artist Claire Prouvost on a limited edition bottle for Father’s Day. The collectors bottle of Foxes Bow’s signature rye cask finish whiskey will be available from today via Irish Malts.
The bottle retails for €49 and there are only 53 of this collectors’ edition available to buy exclusively through Irish Malts.
Foxes Bow’s ethos is about reflecting contemporary Ireland via their whiskey, using rye casks to distinguish itself from traditional whiskeys. Co-founder Alice Carroll said it’s for this reason they chose to team up with Prouvost whose “unique style perfectly captures the vibrancy and boldness of the Ireland of today”.
Foxes Bow is run by Tony and Alice. Inspired by their time in San Francisco, seeing the whiskey collections on the shelves of bars reflecting an outdated view of Ireland, they wanted to create a whiskey that better captures contemporary Ireland. Theirs is a rye cask finish, which has won them the gold medal at the 2022 Irish Whiskey Awards.
Claire Prouvost is a Dublin-based French artist who’s vibrant, bold works are inspired by the cubism art movement. She works in a variety of medium, from acrylic paintings to digital artwork. She has worked with several big names including Barry’s, Guinness and Gucci and her work can often be seen throughout Dublin City.
