Bombay Sapphire gin has employed three leading names from the world of luxury goods and design - glassware manufacturer Baccarat, jeweller Garrard and artist Karim Rashid - to create five hand-made crystal bottles decorated with diamonds and sapphires.

The five Revelation bottles, which are cut in to the shape of giant gemstones, will retail at US$200,000 each and will be exhibited exclusively at five key airports over the next two to three months - Singapore Changi, New York JFK, Dubai, Sydney and London Heathrow's new Terminal 5.

All profits from the sale of the bottles will benefit children's charity The Smile Train, which provides cleft palate surgery to children in third-world countries.

At the London unveiling of Revelation last month, Bacardi Global Travel Retail Division marketing director Gary Chau said: "Bombay Sapphire Revelation gives new meaning to the phrase 'high-value partnership', which is one of the B G T R D 's guiding principles. Creating Revelation has been a collaborative journey and we are nearing the 'reveal' of these five beautiful objects."
