Stephen Fry joined the Exclusive Ballooning team at Tower Bridge, London in June 2013, to launch Fortnum and Mason's brand new and bespoke hot air balloon.

It is the first time in Fortnum's 300 year history that they have commissioned a hot air balloon and the choice was one of style.

Firstly, the balloon envelope is made from bespoke dye fabric to match the Pantone colour of their branding, it also sports the new super shiny gold fabric. It was built in Bristol UK and is 90,000 cubic feet in volume.

The basket was made by hand at Somerset Willow in England and the trim was added using bespoke dyed leather. Even the internal tank covers, padding and floor have been trimmed to Fortnums' colour scheme. Finally, the basket was stenciled with their famous logo and a bespoke made burner added to complete the look.

Shoppers will have been in on the secret as the basket and burners had pride of place in the Piccaddilly store for seven days prior to the official launch.

Stephen Fry was joined in the basket by Fortnum and Mason CEO Ewan Venters to help launch a campaign which will see the balloon first tour the UK before setting sail to tour the world, promoting the very famous brand's finest teas.

In November 2013, the Fortnum and Mason hot air balloon was at St Pancras Station, London for the launch of their new store - the first time in more than three centuries that a new store has opened in the UK. The basket and burners were on display in the main atrium all day as part of the store launch and also to help with charitable collections for the BBC Children in Need appeal.
