Teasmith Spirits Co are an Aberdeenshire based start-up producing Scotland’s first Premium gin, distilled with hand picked Tea – The Teasmith. They are a modern spirits company who pride themselves on the careful curation of the best ingredients to ensure a gin of exquisite quality and taste.

As Brand Partner, we have been tasked with the development of the brand, through strategy, delivery of the identity, packaging, website and marketing – all working together towards the full launch of their first product – The Teasmith.

What’s Unique?
A major element of the brand identity and overall tone, was the customised typeface we created – Teasmith Display. The inner fill pattern depicts a tea leaf and juniper berry chain – symbolic of the two key botanicals the gin uses and central to it’s character.

The label, bottle print, fire-branding, watch strap tamper-proof and metallic roundal were all individually subtle. it was in their combination that the true impact of the packaging appeared.
