Still Sisters Gin is a brand new gin company created by sisters Hannah & Tori from Frome in Somerset. They’ve been crafting great tasting award-winning drinks in their family for over 20 years and use traditional methods passed down through generations to lovingly handcraft every drink. Their new range of Gins are created using locally sourced botanicals from family businesses just like theirs. Using local watercress from organic beds nearby to lavender from select farms in Wiltshire, they are an all women team passionate about producing exquisitely tasting small batch Gin from their bespoke copper still called “Storm”.
We worked with Still Sisters and talented illustrator Lou Collis (creator of numerous world-famous wallpaper & textile designs) to create the brand identity for their new gin along with a range of bottle labels for their different flavours. We used a combination of vintage scratchboard style techniques to create their still “Storm” which features as the central focus point in the brand identity. This was then paired with beautifully hand-painted botanical illustrations to create a range of packaging that’s elegant and enchanting and gives an enticing glimpse into the beautifully crafted floral creations that await within.
We took the decision to hand paint the botanical illustrations with gouache paint which would result in a much bolder and effective design that would stand out amongst other gin brands on the shelves.
