Gauldrons Whiskey

Inspired by ancient folklore, the label features an intricate spider’s web illustration, which takes its cue from King Robert the Bruce and the famous spider story.

The Gauldrons is a vatted malt exclusively from Campbeltown and produced in very small batches by distiller Douglas Laing & Co. The initial brief was to create a dark, eerie Halloween design, where the detail of the foiling was key to the overall look and feel of the label. Super white opaque material was chosen to provide a handcrafted finish.

The brilliant white of the material meant that a dense black could be used, which allowed the ‘Gauldrons’ name style to hold up well against the foil. The thickness of the white material also allowed for a better emboss, providing a more premium look. The end result is a rich dark label, which emphasises the central web area due to the complex foiling surrounding it.

“The feedback from our global customers has been overwhelmingly positive, particularly around the intricacies The Label Makers have achieved with the foil detail, and the overall depth of colour. The flexibility, willingness and sheer determination from the team ensured that the resulting packaging is nothing short of spectacular.”
