The Boatyard Distillery

Brand Identity, Packaging, Web

Enniskillen, Ireland

United Creatives have developed a close working relationship with the Boatyard Distillery taking care of all branding, packaging, signage, exhibition, in-store, web and online design.

Originally set to be named The Lough Erne Distillery, we named the distillery The Boatyard Distillery after a site visit to the marina and converted boatyard in Enniskillen where the family business is based.

Our work for The Boatyard Distillery won a Design Masters Awards in the category of gin at the Spirit Masters Awards. 


The main brand identity is seated in the infinity knot synonymous with Irish Celtic cultures and was used to also correlate with shipping and boating knots to be found on the nearby lough.

The label system and design for print are all executed on a vintage Heidelberg press as the quality achieved by our print partners Blush Publishing is always superior to that of any flexo press, the default go-to for drinks labels with the stopper bespoke designed by United Creatives.


With our help, The Boatyard Distillery became a certified B CORP. After more than 14 months of intense planning and application, they became the first distillery on the island of Ireland to gain accreditation and join a community of over 6000 other companies around the world. The award signals a huge milestone in the companies ethical, sustainable and environmentally conscious mission.
