About the brand

SIP GIN CO

Sip Gin Co. is a boutique distillery specialising in the creation of artisanal, infused gins that redefine the traditional gin-drinking experience. The core focus is the meticulous crafting of premium gins infused with unique and unexpected flavour combinations. Using a blend of traditional distillation techniques and innovative infusion methods.

The challenge

Sip Gin Co needed a brand identity and packaging, with the goal of increasing brand awareness, stand out from the crowd and growing their business. As a new brand, they are looking for consistent and cohesive visuals, that will reflect who they are. They engaged The Brand Mixologist to provide designs that would take their business to the next level.

OUTCOME

We developed a full brand strategy including their ideal client, brand attributes definition and messaging. The brand strategy was translated into a visual identity (logo suit, colours, typography) and packaging. The Brand Mixologist also designed a new professional and cohesive website, to showcase the product and its branding. In the future they might start selling their products online in their website.

BRANDING

As Sip Gin Co.’s goals were to grow and increase brand awareness, stand out from the crowd, and start expanding their business, we wanted to ensure that every aspect of the visual identity reflected these ambitions. Our approach involved translating the brand strategy into a visually compelling identity by creating their logo design, colours, fonts, and image style, focusing on their brand values, ideal client, and brand personality. The objective was to craft something memorable, bold, fun, and undeniably attractive to the target audience.

PACKAGING

Labels and packaging play a critical role in attracting customers, setting products apart from competitors, and ultimately securing purchases. In developing the branding for Sip Gin Co., we carefully considered various elements such as label and box materials, textures, and options for future additional items like gift cards, thank you cards, and insert flyers. Ensuring consistency across all touch points is vital for establishing a strong and cohesive brand identity, and packaging serves as one of the most significant components in achieving this goal.

WEBSITE DESIGN

The final step of The Brand Mixologist process was the design and development of the Sip Gin Co. website. We carefully gathered pertinent information provided by the client, including content copy and professional photography, and aligned it with the brand’s goals to create a website aimed at showcasing the product, brand, and its personality to facilitate further business growth. With the brand’s aspirations to expand sales to other bottle shops and larger alcohol chains, it was necessary to establish an online presence that accurately reflects and presents the products. Thus, the website was designed to highlight the unique features of Sip Gin Co.’s offerings and create a compelling platform for engaging potential partners and customers alike.
