20 cl Old Malt Cask

Country: United States | Fonts used: Cochin, Copperplate, various handwriting fonts.

“Replicating the sample bottles sent to us from stock held at the Distilleries – these wee 20cl bottles appear to have been hand written by one of the team pulling the sample (full marks for legibility!). We select specific bottlings from the 700cl capacities and fill first about 150-200 of the 20cl bottles – so these are little “rarities” – small bottles, in small quantities, from a very small bottling, from a small family company. Fortunately Fred and Stewart are full size.

They do allow the consumer however to taste a small amount before investing in the larger bottle (for himself or a Club) and they are also causing quite a stir in the gift giving sector of the whisky business.”

    Nice, but it could’ve used some real handwriting instead of the handwriting-wannabe fontface, that would make it much better.

    That’s cool!! Really like how they crammed so much into a teeny space. Good use of hand fonts, so many bad examples of hand fonts at the moment.
