Fountains

February 29, 2020

Broken Clock Vodka takes inspiration from English country gardens and Georgian-era books and botanicals.

Decorative fountains and water features were a fundamental component of these ornate landscaped gardens during the 18th and 19th centuries, championed by famed designers such as Capability Brown.

After all water is an essential element for any garden to flourish.

All across Britain these idiosyncratic, decorative and often ingenious features are ardently sustained and restored so that we can enjoy them to this day.

The Georgians were fixated with the neo-classical form so look out for skilful carvings of Greek gods, cherubs, exotic animals and mythical beasts.

Often fountains are the centrepiece to a lawn or a viewpoint from which to enjoy a grand vista and they form a perfect spot to linger and take time to appreciate their splendour.
