Cardamom, rock samphire, and Peruvian cocoa nib—these are certainly not your run-of-the-mill flavors. These exquisite offerings from Curio Spirits sound delicate and lovely, and Kingdom & Sparrow has developed a branding and packaging for the brand to match.

“Curio Spirits produce homemade, high end Cornish gin and vodka. We helped to build and brand Curio Spirits—from naming their company, to advising on flavours and flavoursome partnerships, market research and label design. To get across the depth and quality of flavour we created stylised botanical illustrations, relating to the delicately balanced taste of each product. We even sourced beautiful glass stoppers to make opening their spirits an event in itself. It was important to make them stand out because they were launching in a crowded market place. With a unique brand and distinctive flavours we’ve helped to launch them successfully across the country.”

Curio Spirits offers unique flavors of gin and vodka, and Kingdom & Sparrow has done a superb job of expressing this without overwhelming the customer. The clear cylindrical bottles practically sparkle with the golden script written at the bottom. At the bottom of the bottle, the point of the punt meets up almost perfectly with the point of the label’s square turned onto its point.  This adds angles to spice up the look and makes it stand out on the shelves. Background illustrations look like updated versions of retro floral wallpaper, given spunk with richer hues and non-floral subjects (like cocoa pods).
