2018’s Drinks Business Awards: profiling the recipients

Best Design & Packaging in Spirits

Winner

Chapel Down Bacchus Gin & Chardonnay Vodka

Our judges loved this daring duel design, which pays homage to Chapel Down’s winemaking heritage while tipping its hat to its entry into the world of distilling, with its frosted wine bottle top and cut crystal cocktail shaker bottom. “This bottle really has the wow factor – you want it in your bar,” enthused one judge.

Special Commendation

Hellstrøm Sommer Aquavit designed by Olsson Barbieri

Our judges were full of praise for this emerald green Norwegian Aquavit distilled with seaweed that celebrates the midsummer solstice. They loved its 360-degree screen-printed design, herb and flower motifs, fresh colours and Scandinavian feel. “The bottle is so beautiful I’d want to keep it in my bedroom long after I’ve drunk that Aquavit,” said one judge.

    In terms of the totality of customer satisfaction and lifetime achievement in supporting and upping the ante in the global winemaking industry, Tony’s CBE must be the most deserved ever!

    Well done sir!

    Come to think of it – why wasn’t it a knighthood?

    Best Regards
