This university project was a concept proposal on my third year in graphic design for a fictional distillery based somewhere in Scotland. I named the destillery Mc Ewen distillery and based it in the isle of Muck, Scotland and the gin produced there.
The name, ‘3 Island Gin’ is inspired from the collaboration between the three small islands Rum, Muck & Eigg in order to produce a bespoke gin. The notion of collaboration and sharing came into the design resulting into a refillable and durable bottle that reinforces relationships between the distillery and the customer.
It is a product targeted for adventurous and passionate gin lovers that wants to bring forward the thrill of discovery and risk- taking. A gin that is the best companion in the greatest moments.
