Fords Officers’ Reserve

The 86 Co. / Simon Ford
Packaging / Label Design / Branding

Officers Reserve is the maiden voyage from the Fords Gin ‘Journeys in Gin’ series. The limited edition is a navy strength gin finished in sherry barrels. To create the design we worked with embroidery artist Ffion Lewis to create authentic stitched labels inherent of ship sails and we illustrated anchors and gimlets the latter referencing the culture around the provenance of the traditional seafarers drink. The labelled bottle was paired with a travel and kit bag style presentation box, identity cards and postcard.
