Tanqueray No. TEN

Designed by ButterlyCannon | Country: United Kingdom

“Tanqueray No. TEN is a super-premium gin from Diageo Reserve’s luxury portfolio of World Class spirits. Using a unique combination of botanicals, Tanqueray No. TEN is an ideal choice for a number of serves, including the classic martini.  Its instantly recognisable bottle design celebrates the fresh whole citrus fruits that have always defined the spirit with ten elegant facets flowing down the green bottle, meeting at the base, taking the shape of a citrus squeezer and capturing the 1920s Art Deco period perfectly.

ButterflyCannon was asked to create a glamorous gift box that brought its dazzling 1920’s style to life for the festive season.”

Archie Rose Distilling Co. Tailored

Archie Rose Distilling Co. Tailored

lovely-package-archie-rose-tailored-7

Designed by Squad Ink | Country: Australia

“Squad Ink has created a world first where everyday spirit lovers have the ability to customise their own single bottle of vodka and gin or cask of whisky all from their phone. They even get their name on the bottle.

“We’d been working with Archie Rose Distilling Co. for almost 2 years leading up to it’s launch in Rosebery, Sydney, so we knew everything there was to know about their incredible operation. During a workshop we floated the idea, ‘What if you could customise your own spirit online?’ Will Edwards (Founder), pretty much said ‘Yep, we can make this happen’. We had been following the craft craze with Sydney-siders getting right behind hands on projects like, cheese making, producing their own honey and even beer. This was just the beginning but it was time to take it online and offer a unique consumer experience, available to anyone, anywhere, anytime.

The Tailored Spirits range is a truly bespoke, one of a kind offering, so Squad Ink created packaging worthy of the title. “We were given the green light to go all out, so we produced stunning foiled stamped labels, that feature your customised spirit specifications and even your name on the bottle. We found that people were dying to create spirits for friends so you can now add a lucky mate’s name to the bottle.”

Archie Rose Distilling Co.

Archie Rose Distilling Co.

lovely-package-archie-rose-distilling-co-1

Designed by Squad Ink | Country: Australia

“Archie Rose Distilling Co. is the first independent distillery of craft spirits in the City of Sydney since 1853. Archie Rose honours this rich history while offering Sydney-siders the chance to experience genuine grain-to-glass spirit production onsite with an incredible cocktail bar to boot.

Squad Ink was engaged to brand, package and launch this incredible craft distillery and range of spirits, including a Dry Gin, Original Vodka and a White Rye.

We opted for a heavy-weighted base, bullet style bottle that borrows its shape from the copper pot stills from which the gin, vodka and whisky flow. It’s a nod to the classic whisky bottles of the prohibition era in the United States – confident yet completely unpretentious. Of course, the specific bottle we sketched out didn’t exist as a stock bottle so we had a custom mould created. This opportunity allowed us to distribute more glass in specific areas, such as the neck and shoulder, making way for an authentic mottled glass appearance and heavy in-hand assertiveness. We also added a 360 degree recessed label indentation across the so that the full-wrapped belly label could be profiled as a hallmark design feature. We also embossed “Archie Rose Distilling Co.” out of the base of the bottle in the fashion of a craftsman’s mark – subtle and out of plain sight.”

Conker Spirit

Conker Spirit

lovely-package-conker-spirit-5

Designed by Interbang | Country: United Kingdom

“Interabang have just completed work on the brand and packaging for Dorset’s first gin distillery – Conker Spirit – after being approached by the founder Rupert Holloway.

Free from the constraints of tradition Conker are in pursuit of the new and exciting, with a ruthless focus on quality, and they wanted their bottle to reflect this.

Design cues were taken from the name, which inspired the shell-like shape of the main label. The name also led to the ‘CO’ ligature in the word marque (a graphic conker on a string), which is used as a visual shorthand for the brand.

Dorset is key to Conker. As well as the location for the distillery, the gin uses New Forest spring water and botanicals unique to the area such as handpicked gorse flowers (which influenced the distinctive yellow colour of the batch label). Inspired by the coast, we looked to the typography of vintage railway signs, tickets and posters to evoke the nostalgia of trips to the seaside, and the bottle itself was chosen for its nautical feel.

Copper foil blocked accents were used, as well as a copper lid, to reflect the traditional copper pot distilling process.”

Ariki Spirit

Designed by Redfire Design | Country: New Zealand

“Yes, the Vodka & Gin space is full of competition and dominated by global spirits conglomerates. So if your considering entering this segment you need to go in with your eyes wide open and have a damn good point of difference to carve your niche and get sales.

Enter Ariki. A new player based in New Zealand with a Pacific twist targeting a global audience. Ambitious – Yes! Inspirational – more so.

We loved the challenge to craft this premium spirit brand inspired from Polynesian origins. It was not your stereotypical brand that showcased sun, sea, sand and palm trees ( although we all love that- right) but one that resonated with sophistication, class, taste and flavour profiles that teased and aroused your taste buds.”
