Rakomelo, a traditional Greek alcoholic beverage, literally translates as Raki (or Tsipouro, both types of spirits) and Honey. Ιt is believed to relieve sore throat and work as a remedy for the common cold.

The packaging design for Kallikounis Remedy has a prominent typography made of ‘sticky’ letters that resemble honey, while the backside is dominated by an illustration of a bee, honey’s creator and timeless symbol. The matte metallic copper finish provides a solid, unique surface that makes the graphics stand out and makes for a distinctive packaging.
