For Vørding’s Gin, I wanted to make a packaging that was both recognizable as a fine spirit, as well as being a modern and clean design item with an iconic appearance. With the design I tried to combine my background as a fashion photographer, my passion for architecture and being the founder and owner of my own gin brand. The combination of the glass bottle – a modern interpretation of the classic pharmacy bottle – and the premium natural cork, gives the product a distinguished and sophisticated appearance. A great mood-lifter for any design conscious cocktail connaisseur.
Being a cedar wood infused dry gin, each bottle comes with a thin stick of cedar wood inside the bottle to emphasize the light golden colour of the spirit and the experience of wood infusion. The colour of the wooden stick corresponds with the natural cork which is custom made in Portugal. Wrapped around the bottle is a soft textured all-white label with light and Scandinavian inspired typography. Each bottle is marked with it’s own unique number counting up to no. 550 per batch, and is filled, labelled and packed by hand.
