Isle of Harris Gin Label
“The first offering from a new community distillery on the Isle of Harris – the whole packaging and bespoke glass design is influenced by the people, the place (rugged, dramatic), the tweed and reflects the subtle colours of the landscape. We spent time perfecting the glass bottle structure and of course we wanted the best possible printed labels to match.
Our design intent was to have a unique custom label on each bottle by printing onto hand-produced paper with built in sea kelp and botanicals. We worked with Multi-Color Daventry to recreate this design intent as a viable commercial print run. We created 50 different backgrounds which were printed flexo and then over-printed with metallics and varnish which recreate the effect of ’small flecks of sea kelp’ within the label. It all worked perfectly thanks to Multi-Color Daventry’s attention to detail and experience in using ink technologies.”
