Last week, Guinness launched the 3 limited-edition designs for its Foreign Extra Stout bottles and cans at the Intermark Hotel, Kuala Lumpur in conjunction with their 50 years of Guinness being brewed in Malaysia. It's been awhile since my last alcoholic party and it's an honour to be part of this amazing event.
Half a century ago was the first brewery of Guinness in Malaysia. How time flies! In conjunction with its 50 years celebration, 3 different limited edition bottle designs were illustrated by Malaysians for Malaysians.
Each limited-edition design represents a distinct era in Malaysia's journey - stretching back to our tribal roots, through to the age of independence, leading into the modern day and looking ahead to the future.
For the first time, Guinness Malaysia have created brand new limited-edition designs specifically for one country, drawing inspiration from its culture and its people to celebrate the milestone of 50 years of brewing Guinness in Malaysia.
The 3 limited-edition designs are a marked departure from the brand's iconic black and gold visuals. Each one is bursting with vibrant colours and intricate patterns, inspired by the wealth of history and culture Malaysia has to offer. What hasn't changed, however, is the glorious Guinness inside - it's still the exact same formula that Malaysians have known and loved for all these years.
Behind the designs are 5 luminaries of the Malaysian creative scene, who came together to explore the concepts of history, identity and culture which have informed the new limited-edition looks.
Representing a range of creative disciplines, the 'Creative Council' comprised of musician Edwin Raj (frontman of local band They Will Kill Us All), artist Donald Abraham, film director James Lee, graphic artist Lefty (Julian Kam), and photographer Vincent Paul Yong.
The 3 collectable limited-edition designs will appear on all bottles (325 ml and 640 ml) and cans (320 ml) of Guinness Foreign Extra Stout sold in Malaysia from now until November, while stocks last. I can't wait to collect all the pretty designs since I am a huge fan of Guinness! *wide grin*
