The Botanist Islay Dry Gin is an exciting and unusual gin from the Islay whisky distillery Bruichladdich. The Botanist is made in a Lomond still, christened Ugly Betty and contains no fewer than 31 botanicals, of which 22 are native to the Southern Hebridean island itself. The company was looking for a packaging solution for its gin glasses.
The packaging look used a soft touch matte lamination with spot UV to replicate the raised lettering from the bottle design. The internal packaging included a huge punch of colour with illustrations of the different ingredients within the Gin.
