Dodd’s Gin

Drinks Branding / Label Design

We worked with The London Distillery to create their first brand Dodd’s Gin. Dodd’s has since grown to become a range of gins including a limited edition made with honey from the bees kept on the roof of the Piccadilly store Fortnum & Mason. The Dodd’s label has been voted one of the worlds five most beautiful gin labels.

The London Distillery Company is a boutique whisky and gin distillery based in Bermondsey and incredibly, the company was first formed over 200 years ago in 1807 by the brilliant but relatively unknown engineer and serial entrepreneur Ralph Dodd.

Production

All of our design work seeks to endorse the finest quality printing and the labels for Dodd’s are hand printed on a vintage Heidelberg letterpress. The papers we use are all FSC certified from trust paper mills, the inks are vegetable-based and the wooden stoppers are sustainably sourced.

Supporting Materials

In addition to creating the Dodd's drinks brand and designing the core label set we have provided a range of supporting collateral such as secondary packaging and visual toolkits. Colour variants in the shipper case design allow those working in warehouse to quickly distinguish between boxes of six and boxes of twelve.

The Dodd's Bee Nice cards we designed contain wildflowers in their paper stock so that once the number has been entered into a mobile the cards can them be planted or discarded in a garden and in time give back to the bees.
