This packaging design was created for Spirit of York Distillery Co. in Toronto, Canada. 3 premium bitters are included in this box set. The pattern was designed to represent the various botanicals included in each of the three bitters and also illustrate the process/equipment used to create their premium products. Minimal representations of Szechuan peppercorns, oranges, wild strawberries and star anise can be found within the pattern.

A minimalistic border and pattern style was chosen to allow the packaging to work with the existing brand identity. The copper brand colour was used to emphasize the beauty of the distillery and the operational stills that can be seen on display.

What’s Unique?
Copper pattern detail on the sides of the box.
