The Label Makers has partnered with UK-based distiller Faith and Sons to create a new look for its No Name Distillery range of gin liqueurs.
Distilling gin on a micro scale, No Name Distillery produces 200 50cl bottles at a time. The labels have been produced for five gin liqueur flavours: dandelion and burdock, fruit salad, raspberry ripple, violet infused, and pineapple and coconut.
The material used for the labels was a Manter laid cream paper. This uncoated laid paper was supplied to a wet strength specification to enable it to perform well where condensation could be high, for example in an ice bucket.
The Label Makers said the front and back labels required an intricate die cut to enhance the premium feel. They were embellished with gold hot foil to draw attention to the flavour variety, with a deboss embellishment adding an extra dimension to the finished piece.
Filipe Sousa, owner of Faith and Sons distillery, said: “It was a pleasure working with The Label Makers. We faced some project complexities, but the team overcame all challenges they encountered and brought the designs to life.
“Despite the differences in shape and style, both the front and back labels needed to be printed consecutively on the finished reel. By managing the position and using clever production techniques, we achieved what was needed and avoided issues with removal of the waste matrix. I look forward to working with The Label Makers team on more projects in the future.”
Last year, The Label Makers collaborated with UK-based Robinsons Brewery to provide an updated look for its portfolio of beers.
