“This dark beer is brewed using smoked malt grown in the Ravenhof Castles courtyard to give it a rich and strong smoky flavour. 

The label itself is laser engraved on the bottle. A metallic purple colour is used to give it a premium, yet dark and gritty feel. The carrier pack is simple and consistent with the visual style of the brand. The handle incorporates the shape of the logo and the bottle opener is used as a give-away and to strengthen the carrier pack.”

“Our long time whisky client, Compass Box, has done a limited edition scotch for the icon London store Selfridges. London artist Peter Blake seemed fitting inspiration but Selfridges have really gone to town with the in store displays.

This is a very limited bottling so get it while you can.”

Designed by St. Bernadine Mission Communication Inc. | Country: Canada

“Mahony & Sons Public House, a premium and authentic Irish pub in Vancouver, created their own custom blend of Irish Whiskey for their valued guests and patrons. As the cask was on display in the centre of the pub, Mahony & Sons called on St. Bernadine to design a cask for their Mahony & Sons Proprietors’ Special Blend that complemented their brand, while also communicating the special handcrafted nature of this select premium Irish Whiskey, carefully mellowed in a sherry conditioned cask. The cask, affectionately  called “The Good Woman” pays homage to a Mahony ancestor who owned a “Good Woman Pub” in the 1870′s.”

Truett Hurst x Safeway

Designed by Stranger & Stranger | Country: United States

Kevin Shaw, Founder and Creative Director of Stranger:

“The idea came from our own No.13 pack. We created brands in a packaging format that stands out and adds value, interest and gifting opportunities. The added real estate that the over sleeve gives us has allowed us to engage with people in a way that a tiny back label never can. Everyone just wants to pick up and read these packs.

The best ideas are the simplest and we made them look striking and very individual. The launch range is just hitting the shelves and we’re developing new ideas every day.

I have to say that I applaud the way that Safeway have so enthusiastically embraced the idea. This is just the beginning. We’re going to see a lot more interesting ideas in the wine aisles this year.”
