2018’s Drinks Business Awards: profiling the recipients

Best Sustainable Packaging

Winner

Omdesign 2016

Our judges were united in their praise for this clever, eco-friendly packaging that encapsulates Omdesign’s ethos of wanting to give back to nature, and loved the integration of cork within the packaging and the interactive element, as each LBV Port gift box comes with an acorn in a soil pot that the recipient can plant, bringing the consumer into the design and making them a part of the cork oak preservation initiative.

Sparflex award for English Sparkling wine packaging

Winner

Digby Fine English

Our judges praised Digby’s bright, fun, innovative design that told an engaging story of a colourful character. They loved that Digby is carving its own niche and celebrating Englishness with a memorable brand that has its own distinct DNA.

Special commendation

Rathfinny Wine Estate

In a hotly fought category, our judges commended Rathfinny for its beautiful, elegant design, which looks deceptively simple at first, but is intricately detailed on closer inspection. They particularly loved subtle incorporation of the Seven Sisters chalk cliff into the label design, reflecting the estate’s location in Sussex.
