The Boatyard Distillery

Client: Joe McGirr
Category: Branding / Naming / Label Design

With the grain for the products grown locally for what is a true farm-to-bottle product we set out to tell a story via the brand identity which forms the centre of the label design. We built in calm and stormy waters, oars and boats and potato flowers and referenced an infinite rope knot synonymous with ancient Irish culture. 

Our work for The Boatyard Distillery won a Design Masters Awards in the category of gin at the Spirit Masters Awards 2016 and IWSC Silver and Bronze 2017.

As well as the drinks label and brand identity we have also been involved with signage and investment document design for The Boatyard Distillery. Using the work of a local photographer paired with our own from our site visit we formulated a clear overview of the financials and business plan associated with such a venture.
