“Hired Guns Creative provided the product naming, branding, and packaging design for Coven, a vodka from Arbutus Distillery, Vancouver Island’s newest craft distillery.

Cloaked in the heavy mists of the West Coast, a timeless rite enchants those who seek a greater spirit. Initiation requires strict dedication to the craft. There is power in numbers, so gather together because when the light fades, the ritual begins.

We’ve been waiting for you.”

    That red wax cap is likely to be a trademark infringement problem…

    Adriana – we used real wax.

    Andreas – timelapse is here: http://hiredgunscreative.com/sites/default/files/arbutus/coven-animated.gif

    Randy – we’re aware of the trademark issue re. the wax. The final product (this is a prototype) will have a slightly different wax dipping style… probably less “drippy.”

    Just a heads up, the drippy red wax seal is a protected trademark of Makers Mark Whiskey.
