Shortlisted Award Nomination

Winchester Gin

The inspiration for this design came from King Arthur’s Round Table. The execution of the label was agreed through a forum of CS Labels’ internal design, print, embellishment experts, together with the customer.

CS Labels created a special mix of CMYK to create the deep dark black, and when mixing this with a Tintoretto Gesso craft paper (which is less stable than other substrates), allowed for the base of a stunning contrast.  All the colour was then highlighted by using a Kurtz Gold (495n) foil. Preparing the embossing blocks was a much more complex process.

Both chiselled and a rounded embossing plates were applied to achieve the results required.  Applying the right amount of pressure was vital as the challenge was to ensure the foil didn’t crack through the various processes.
