Project Description

Noteworthy Gin is the first product released by The Dubh Glas Distillery, a new distillery in BC’s agriculturally-rich Okanagan Valley. The product name references the quality of the super-premium gin and the packaging features a custom illustration of Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture and grain crops. We suggested that offering the gin in a box would help convey its standing as an ultra-premium product and help it stand out from other gins on the shelf.

Production Lesson(s)

Coordinating colours between two printers and a bar top manufacturer was probably the biggest challenge for us on this project. In the end, we found it easiest to have one component produced first and then have the other printers match the colours manually.”
