“Farmhouse Ales: nestled amongst the Niagara wineries along the road into Niagara-on-the-lake Ontario lies a big old red barn — now the home of the new Niagara Oast House Brewers. The brewery is the passion of a group of local Niagara wine and beer industry friends that decided beer was their love. Oast’s essence and visual palette were designed to convey the area’s bucolic country lifestyle and soul.
The Saison and Biere de Garde are Belgian style farm ales. Seasonals that would have traditionally been served to keep farm workers hydrated and happy in the fields as well as to celebrate the harvest. The ales are an embrace of the local farm spirit that is so deeply integral to the Niagara region.”

“Lervig started their brewery back in 2003, and now as it’s their 10th anniversary they decided to make a limited edition beer as a celebration, only sold directly at the brewery. The design tells the story of how it started with key words that changed from where they started and where they are now through a typography solution, that falls in similar old style category as the design style of their previous beers. The four pack consisted of 2 of each 2003 and 2013 editions and a little surprise as you open it you’re welcomed with “Enjoy your lervig” written under the closing mechanism. The design was printed as silver on pure black to emphasise both the exclusivity of the limited edition beer and a suitable combination for their anniversary.”

“Oola Distillery is one of Seattle’s first craft distilleries, producing small batches of gin, vodka, infused vodkas and whiskey. Oola’s goal is 100% use of Washington state people and ingredients from grain to glass: gins in which you can taste the botanicals, distinctive vodkas, and whiskey flavorful and smooth.
The goal for the packaging design was to bring this locavore ideal to the forefront. We did this by generically naming each spirit and using typography to help depict the hand-made and down-to-earth feel of this brand.”

“Following our refresh of the Gramp’s range of premium wines, _Co were briefed to design the 50 year old Museum Tawny, the jewel in the Gramp’s family crown. Great things come in small packages and in threes; the limited release of 300 x 375ml bottles, retails at AU$300 per bottle. Showcased in a luxury customised box, this rare and prestigious parcel of wine was a delight to hand craft. We chose a premium Saver Glass bottle and designed a wax seal which was hand applied to every label.”

“Evil Spirits is a new premium spirits line that is painstakingly crafted to be sinfully enjoyed. St. Bernadine was tasked with package design and a media kit for the launch.
Evil Spirits Vodka is the product of a distilling craft so refined it must have been exchanged for diabolical favours. St. Bernadine extended this brand promise through every detail of the design language. Custom word mark? Evil. Spirit renderings in matte varnish? Evil. Recipe card? Evil. Ouiji board with commemorative cast pewter planchette? Evil. It’s time to succumb to the guilty pleasure of Evil Spirits.”

“Rhum Agricole is an exclusive rum that is distilled on the French island of Martinique in the Caribbean Sea. Compared to normal rum, rhum agricole is made out of freshly squeezed sugar cane juice, rather then from molasses.
When creating the new liquor brand, Fourteen Sixtyone, I was inspired by the old ocean fare and vintage maps (read pirates). The island of Martinique has the geographic coordinates 14°40n 61°00w, hence the chosen brand name.”

“An extension of the core Ola Dubh range, the product is the first of a new range of craft beers by Harviestoun Brewery where the ale is matured in Highland Park Single Malt whisky casks.
The ale was released on 1 May in limited numbers and confirmed its premium nature by selling out in 48 hours, six weeks before it was packaged. It has captured a discerning consumer, who loves beautifully brewed craft beer, but also appreciates the subtleties offered by the whisky cask maturing process.
threebrand was tasked to create packaging for the beer that reflected the core Ola Dubh brand but signals that although an extension of the core range, it is a different edition.
The ethos of the Highland Park Whisky look and feel were also to be taken into consideration and balanced within the design.”
