“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.”

“AAAAAhh the story of this brand!!! For one of our Taiwanese clients some years ago we had to develop a brand incorporating his Anglicised name – Dennis (he liked MacDennis!!) We put our foot down and insisted on something vaguely authentic that has now become CLAN DENNY, though Dennis did not become a client, alas!”

“This is 5th generation grape grower and winemaker Wes Lowrey’s entry into the exploding Canadian wine scene. Located in the Ontario appellation of St. David’s Bench, this premium hand made wine expresses the character of the area and terroir in very low volume production – ranging from 24 bottle lots to 200 cases per release.
To reflect the time and passion involved in this type of winemaking, the packages are also hand involved and produced in small numbers – some hand completed, folded and applied. The bottles are finished simply with a dime of wax on top to protect the cork and have a stripped down simplicity.”

“J.H. Andresen produce the some of the finest Port in the world, and wanted to offer a selective gift pack to their consumers. I designed a bespoke brushed steel box and pared down the Port language to fit with the existing Andresen range. This was a NPD project, and was a huge duty free success, selling out almost immediately. The brief follows builds on an existing relationship where I was involved with the design of their Century Port and solely responsible for the 2004 design of their website.”

“A bottle that is shorter and rounder than other Blossa products. The shape of the bottle is kept from year
to year, with the colours and typography changing to reflect that particular year’s design and flavour.”

“Returning to the “good old days” of Victorian Music Hall for it’s inspiration, our new ceramic decanter goes by the name of PREMIER BARREL, and replicates Scotch Whisky Decanters from the late 1800’s. Actually, it also looks like an old fashioned bed-pig, designed to keep you warm on cold winter nights – a job its Malt Selection can still do for you!”
