LONDON, November 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Beefeater Studio24, launched by Beefeater 24 and in partnership with Last.fm, lets people mix their most memorable Instagram photos with their favorite music tracks via Last.fm to create a one of a kind record cover. The record cover is unique to each person as they choose the artwork that overlays their photo - themes include Pop, Electronica and Folk - and personalize their cover to create something distinct and unique to them.

Record covers celebrate that perfect moment in time when great memories combined with good music create an unforgettable experience. With Beefeater Studio24, these experiences can live on as they are immortalized in a personalized record cover, creating the soundtrack to someone's life.

Beefeater 24 Brand Director Paco Recuero said: "With Beefeater Studio24 we want to inspire people to capture, celebrate and share a moment in time that means something to them. We want them to bring the same creative inspiration to their album covers that helped our master distiller create Beefeater 24, bringing together fine botanicals and exotic teas for the perfect length of time, 24 hours, to create a smooth and sophisticated gin. Like our gin, Beefeater Studio24 captures inspired moments perfectly."

Photographer and co-founder of the Mobile Photo Group, Sion Fullana, who is using Beefeater Studio24 to share his perfect moments says, "The site is an easy and fun way to bring together your favorite images and songs, to create striking record covers that convey your most meaningful stories. Photography and music combine together to create an ever-lasting memory." Sion's record covers can be viewed by searching for his Beefeater Studio24 user name, 'Sion FJ'.

All record covers are available to view in the 'Record Collection' section on the site. The site allows you to view record covers by user name or by track name and allows you to share your record cover with friends on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+. Also on the site is a collection of contemporary gin cocktails which are timed and mixed to perfection - this precise moment is captured in an album cover with the accompanying recipe.

Creating a record cover on Beefeater Studio24 could not be simpler:

1. Visit beefeaterstudio24.com and log in to your Instagram account

2. Choose an Instagram image from your account and select a track from Last.fm which suits your image

3. Personalize your album by choosing your album artwork and editing the title or changing the text colour
