Elan Valley Distillery

Elan Valley Distillery is a small distillery based in Wales that overlooks the Elan Village. They specialise in creating bespoke spirits tailored to you. With your influence, they establish a botanical profile to discover your gin. Every spirit created is unique and customisable because of the business's small-batch approach. The local hedgerows and flowers are lovingly collected and infused to create a magical botanical experience. Elan Valley Distillery aims to encourage gin connoisseurs to use their services to discover their gin and personalise it to their taste.

Discover Your Gin

I set out to create a high-end and sophisticated design and incorporate the heritage of Elan Valley into the branding. The brand identity and packaging should be unique, custom-designed, and reflects the bespoke nature of the distillery. Rather than create a botanical style, I decided to go for the abstract nature of the Elan Valley as a botanical flavour theme design would limit the brand concept for Elan Valley Gin.

Enjoy A Taste Of Wales

I looked at the unique rock formations and used them to create an abstract shape of the infamous river dam. I also made labels and card designs that are bespoke to the consumer. If the customer would like to buy it as a gift for a person on a special occasion, it can come with the gin for free.
