We have been working with The Block Distilling Co in Denver Colorado for many years, creating their signature look of the oversized wooden top (one of their founders is a woodworker, they are housed in what is known as The Block Building). They connected with local and national musician Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats for a collaboration which first launched at a concert at the iconic amphitheatre Red Rocks. Part of every bourbon sale goes towards The Marigold Project, a non-profit started by Ratliff and team that works on issues of economic, racial and social justice. Dando went bold with the packaging and the added attention to The Marigold Project has been tremendous.
Dando Projects continued their work with longtime partners at The Block Distilling Co to design their collaboration with Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats for The Marigold Project. The Bespoke soft metal marigold flower boldly decorates the front of the bottle, connecting the glass bottle to the custom wooden block top, that is distinctive to the brand story. Dando Projects reimagined The Block Distilling Co’s packaging to shine a light onto the Marigold Project. Each bottle of luscious bourbon supports the work of The Marigold Project – engaging with community and nonprofit organizations working on issues of economic, racial and social justice.
