GIN AND PACKAGING: two of my favourite things! I have many a Hendrix Bottle now used as a vase, and I can't get enough of Four Pillars, but my top four combine the beauty of gin with beauty of packaging (and, importantly, brand story). Much swooning ahead...
TAMWORTH DISTILLERY "is focused on capturing the fruits, flowers, and herbs of Tamworth in their purest form. Utilising a variety of local and foraged ingredients to make drinking an experience, the spirits are centered around the harvest of each season". If they didn't have me at the copywriting, they certainly did at the packaging. Beautiful and SO up my alley with the floral design.

BROKEN HEART was created by two Germans living in New Zealand’s Southern Alps. When one of the creators passed away, the other decided to share the superb gin with the world and to call it Broken Heart for him. Both sad and uplifting, the graphic is so simplistic but powerful.

OPHIR capture the exotic and the mysterious. I love spiced gin and I love elephants. So it is no surprise that I also love this bottle.

BONNIE AND CLYDE GIN. This concept & Label Design was produced by Deluxe Distillery, with extraordinarily beautiful original artwork by Pearly Yon. The personality, the detail, the playfulness. It's perfect.
