Exciting times for us, launching new labels for Abelha Silver in 2 versions, one featuring the traditional art from our friend Holly Wales, and also the new scraperboard illustration by Jonathan Chadwick.
As a brand, we are committed to art, and our eventual plan is to have a series of artworks celebrating different illustrators, artists and styles as much as possible. The constant features are the colours (the teal background), the logotype, and the bees. And of course, the cachaça remains exactly the same winning formula.
Check out more of Jonathan’s work here, and you can even see the process by which we got to labels on his blog at Artistic Type.

Our friend Milo just finished the art on our new van. He’s done an incredible mural featuring sugar cane, bees (in case you missed it, Abelha means ‘bee’ in Portuguese), a wave on the right hand side for when we go surfing, and he even squeezed in our Management Accountant, Pedro Souza dos Santos, on the back. Honk if you see us around!

Braziliality, curated by the lovely Alicia Bastos, is an ongoing monthly art exhibition at the 16mm Cafe in Soho, which showcases work from Brazilian artists, or work inspired by Brazil.
We were happy to sponsor their first Birthday party, as it featured work from Eduardo Zappia who joined up with the volunteer firefighters in Chapada Diamantina (where Abelha Cachaça is created), to combat the massive bushfires there last year.

People either love or hate the labels – they’re illustrated by hand and designed to be a bit rustic and crafty rather than in-your-face Brasilian. Art and illustration is by Holly Wales and Anthony Sheret.
Holly is an up and coming artist/illustrator who lives between London and Berlin, and her work has featured in the New York Times and the Telegraph Magazine. We used to work together, and the piece she did that stuck in my mind the most was the tape duck. We love handmade stuff like this. See more of Holly’s work on her blog.
