Nude Brand Creation Swanks Up Copperfield London Gin
by Casha Doemland on 07/11/2018 | 2 Minute Read
Designed by Nude Brand Creation, Copperfield London Dry Gin features gold embossed florals and greenery against a dark teal background, delivering a high-end bottle of gin.
According to a press release, "Copperfield London Dry Gin is handcrafted in small batches in a bespoke copper pot still using a blend of botanicals. The recipe is based on a heritage Georgian recipe taken from the first edition of The Complete Distiller by Ambrose Cooper, published in 1757 in Holborn, London."
The press release goes on to say that, "Copperfield gin is hand-bottled and hand-labelled. The idea of creating a book inspired bottle came out of Katherine and Chris Smart’s background in academia and their passion for collecting rare, vintage books, especially Charles Dickens. Naming the first volume ‘Copperfield’ was a direct reference to Dickens but also alludes to the copper still and the selected natural botanicals used in the creation of this amazing London Dry Gin.
"The bookplate is embellished with a detailed illustration commissioned by Alex Machin. Interwoven botanicals overlay rich copper foiling to replicate a cover from the golden era of book design."
Tony Enoch, Partner at Nude Brand Creation, said: “Katherine and Chris are avid collectors of rare and antiquarian books and, after creating the identity for The Surrey Copper Distillery, it was only natural that literature inspired the bottle design. The intricate detail of the label design together with the use of copper foil will create real impact on shelf. The handwritten notes on the inside of the bottle are an extra discovery.”
Katherine and Chris add: “Nude have been great to partner with and have created something we are really proud of. The bottles look fantastic in photos but in real life they are stunning. We feel they are the perfect package for the gin, both have been created with such care and attention.”
