Our design for Eight Oaks Distillers’ limited edition Old Tom Gin is replete with whimsical illustrations marrying distillation ingredients and furry friends of the feline persuasion — a nod to the spirit’s 18th-Century roots. The two-color label is beautifully detailed and sophisticated with just the right amount of playfulness. Look closely and you’ll discover two Tomcats, one of which rides upon an orange wheel unicycle.
We worked with a unique dieline which grounds and integrates the Eight Oaks logo and which also creates a secondary tab effect for the PROOF/ABV/BATCH tab, thus avoiding the need for the additional hand-applied label.
