Label of the Month! Hampshire Gin Labels

Check out these fantastic gin label sets from the lovely folk at Winchester Distillery.

Winchester Distillery distils premium spirits that take inspiration from the Hampshire countryside. Established by Paul Bowler in 2014, their products are stocked by high quality wine merchants, farm shops and stores throughout England.  Distilled by hand in small batches, Winchester use secret recipes which are tweaked by the master distiller.

We already print their range of gin labels on a fabulous kraft paper and their labels are also adorned with the wonderful embellishment of gold foil. However on their latest artworks we noticed the foil area was very intricate and after having looked at the detail we had concerns about the traditional foil block being lost in the wonderful design. We really want our clients to make the most of digital technology, so we ran a press proof for them on silver polypropylene using special effects called colour logic instead to see if this would make the design stand out more. We added a matt laminate and check out the results – stunning!

They were really happy with the labels, and we were also really pleased that they liked the spectacular effects that color logic provides without the use of foil.

Paul Bowler, Founder and Distiller said:  I am pleased with the labels – they are really gorgeous. Helen and the team were extremely helpful. Recommending color-logic instead of foil has saved us money without compromising quality. The design team helped us to add extra depth to the labels so the text shines through, and the turnaround was great. The labels look stunning.
