  • Gleneagles Cocktail Bar Menu
    Gleneagles Cocktail Bar MenuImages conceived and shot for the new menu launch at the Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland. The drinks were created using leftover products from the hotel itself – from fruit waste to pastries. The shoot concept was to feature both the drink and its key re-used ingredient in each image, while thematically creating an Ikebana-esque sculpture that somehow called back to the Scottish landscape surrounding the hotel. Photography, retouch, concept by Addie Chinn Set Styling by Sophie Iona
