8848 RYE Vodka

The Collaboration

In our inaugural collaboration, 8848 Vodka teams up with Nepali-born Tibetan artist, Tsherin Sherpa to release its new Rye Vodka in a limited-edition bottle showcasing an exclusive art piece inspired by the Himalayas.

The 8848 Rye Vodka x Tsherin Sherpa is a collector’s edition release limited to 30,000 bottles. The rye vodka, a first in Nepal, is crafted with the finest Polish rye, distilled five times and undergoes a unique filtration process that imparts a smooth, dry finish vodka with hints of black pepper notes.

The Art

Capturing the essence of the Himalayas in a gleaming display of strokes and colours, Tsherin Sherpa celebrates the diversity of the Himalayas in his artwork for the collaboration.

“The artwork is a celebration of diverse cultures within our Himalayan region. I wanted to honour these different voices by merging their spirit with the peaks of the Himalayas, whose heights have become global symbols of Nepal. The glorious Himalayan peaks extending every upwards are fitting emblems of our collective spirit.” — Tsherin Sherpa

The Artist

Born in Kathmandu, Nepal, Tsherin Sherpa is a trained Thangka painter whose work features Tibetan deities, spirits and narratives imbued with personal experiences from his life and modern day concerns and issues.

Known for blending traditional Tibetan Thangka techniques and motifs with modern art, his signature style of reimagined Thangka paintings transformed into contemporary expressions and forms has garnered international recognition. His artwork has been exhibited in many prestigious art museums in Asia, Europe and the United States. Sherpa is also the first Nepali artist to exhibit at the 59th Venice Biennale this year, and is currently showcasing his first solo museum exhibition at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
