Black Lion Vodka is a family-owned, British business with a passion for adventure. Based in the Cotswolds, owners Tim and Tanya thought it would be a brilliant idea to convert an otherwise waste product into the UK’s first sheep’s milk vodka. The business has been 3 years in the making with the vision always being to enter the spirits industry with their niche alcoholic beverage made from a rare breed of sheep, Black Lion. With most vodkas being made from grains, potatoes or grapes, Tim and Tanya saw a gap in the market and an opportunity to put this unique distilling process and their rare breed of sheep firmly on the map.
After looking for a website and branding agency to turn their vision into a reality, Tim and Tanya appointed Riley and Thomas to complete their website, branding, marketing and SEO. This partnership has been a match made in heaven due to everyone’s passion for sustainability, provenance and releasing the UK’s first sheep’s milk vodka!
After understanding Black Lion Vodka’s mission, vision and values, and following multiple discussions with Tim and Tanya on what they like and dislike about competitor products, our team went away and began designing each element of this unique brands packaging.
Your products packaging not only has to protect the product but it needs to reflect each aspect of your brand and what you stand for. How your packaging looks will affect the value of your product and ultimately how many sales you make. The main areas our team have to focus on when designing alcohol packaging is; protection, convenience and labelling. We then have to ensure all regulations are adhered to and the product is transportable.
