Exquisite packaging design for hand-made, small batch gin

Feb 6, 2019 | Blog, Design

Design Activity have created an exquisite packaging design for a new, hand-made, small batch London dry gin – named after the founders’ gorgeous spaniel Jake, and his infectious enthusiasm for all the good things in life.

Jake’s Gin is a family run company, born from a love of Gin, a passion for plants and a fascination with the art of distilling. Their gin is carefully crafted and distilled in small batches at the Chrishall Distillery using a traditional copper still ‘Gladys’ for a truly unique flavour.

Working closely with Edward May, the founder and maker, Design Activity have brought to life his vision of having a modern twist on the classic London dry gin brands.

The packaging design features a tall, elegant bottle, wrapped in images of the unique botanicals used to make the gin, to portray both taste and beauty. The intricate detail of the design reflects the crafted, delicate ingredient balance and expertise that goes into distilling such an exquisite gin.

The branding is reminiscent of classic spirit design whilst an emblem of Jake’s head gives a modern twist, and a nod to the reasoning and personality behind the name.

Jake’s Gin is here to remind us that we should all live life to the full – freely, adventurously and with love.

Best served neat over ice or mixed with premium tonic water, plenty of ice with a garnish of lemon – to truly enjoy the juniper, coriander, citrus and floral notes.

Design Activity have created an attractive and distinctive design for my Jake’s gin brand which I am immensely proud of. They helped manage every step of the process which is exactly what I needed, as creating and launching a brand is very new to me. I’m so pleased with the final result, we really love it. Our bottles look beautiful and hopefully gin lovers will think so too! Edward May, Founder & Maker
