Check out albrecht.blatt's Product label contest…
Food & Drink
Hof-Destillerie Albrecht Blatt
depending on variety name of the fruit, e.g. "Williams Christ" and the company logo
Description of the product
We are a small distillery in the south-west of Germany dedicated to growing and crafting small batches of very high quality and sustainably destillates. We produce distillates of different fruits. We are looking for destillates label with a high regonitation value. I already got a logo that should be used on the label. The retail price of the destillates will be between 15 and 25 Euro. Please include the fruit variety on the label, as the design is going to be used for several destillates. Afterwards only this information has to be changed between the different fruites and not the whole label.
Description of the product target audience
End customers between the ages of 30-70 with middle to high income. Fine Gastronomy, special retailers.
We need labels for the bottle "Oslo Apotek" from the company Saverglass (I have uploaded image and dimensions of the bottle). We need a front label, a back label, a neck label and a banderole over the closure. The closure is a round wooden handle cork with a diameter of 35 mm and a height of 15 mm. -->the front label should contain the following information: - logo (the font in the logo and the logo itself can be customized if needed) - the fruit variety (for example Williams Christ, Kirsch, Mirabelle Nancy, ...) - Product of Swabia / Germany - handcrafted - Optional: Destillates-number als a second "logo" for each fruit-sort (example see in upload. the font in the logo and the logo itself can be customized if needed) - Optional: Distilled & Botteled, Selection, Small Batch - Optional: DESTILLATE NOBILIS ESSENTIA --> Back label should contain the following: - Produced and bottled by Hof-Destillerie Albrecht Blatt - Adress - Telephone-number - E-Mail-adress - Website - Product of Swabia/Germany - Room for a tasting note technical information: - Obstbrand Willimas Christ - Los-Nummer - Alc. 42% Vol. - 50 CL --> The neck label could include the following (all optional or as a suggestion): - DESTIALLTE NOBILIS ESSENTIA - other design elements --> The banderole could contain the following (all suggestions, no need): - SMALL BATCH - Company logo on the top of the round wooden handle cork - other design elements We will have several fruit varieties of our destillates so we need a "general" label that will be used for all varieties. We will just change the name of the fruit on the Front-label. The label should be designed in a simple, clear and "minimalist" fashion. It should however be easily "noticeable" on a store shelf full of bottles. The label is meant to convey the very high quality of the distillates. It sholud be evokes a feeling of understated elegance. As a label paper, a structured/textured natural white paper should to be used. For the banderole could also be another perhaps thinner smooth paper can be used. These labels may be printed using letter press, if so, the text can be heavily punched into the thick paper. If we use modern commercial printing, embossing and other techniques can be used to make certain text or features stand out.
What to avoid
We are open for everything – no rules for creativity! We are working together with a really good printing company that can realise almost everything. Only 1-2 colors besides black should be used. Preferably red to highlight special features.
The dimensions are not fixed but should fit the bottle. See upload the bottle dimensions and shape
