It’s wonderful to have in person events back again, and last night our attendance at the The Scottish Design Awards, was made even more special by winning the Packaging Category for our work with the Isle of Harris Gin Distillery. These awards celebrates the very best of Scottish architecture, arts and advertising.

Our partnership with Isle of Harris Distillers has been a 7-year working relationship and we couldn’t be prouder of the creative work we have produced with them over the years. Last year we also won a Drum Design Award in the Resourceful Design category as well as a coveted wooden pencil award from D&AD Awards for Packaging Design so it’s fantastic to see this partnership thriving throughout 2022 as well.

Based in Outer Hebrides, the Isle of Harris Distillery prides itself on embracing the beauty character of the island and the people who live there, with every drop of their award-winning gin inspired by their local surroundings.

We were tasked with creating packaging that would reflect the Distillery brand values and compliment their heritage but is also 100% recyclable, and crucially suitable for the challenges of posting fragile products.

The packaging wherever possible seeks to lead the recipient through layers of information about the brand. When the glasses within the gift packs are unremoved, the story of their hand-blown creation Is revealed, and an inlay provides more details about the ingredients used to create the gin’s unique maritime flavour. Whilst the hinged mechanism design ensures the glasses are kept secure during transit or In a retail environment.
