FREEBOOTER, freedom and long life The Queen’s Rhum!

by Elizabeth Freeman on 11/08/2016 | 5 Minute Read

Cheers to freedom and long life! Designed by TSMGO, this exceptional bottle of rum is a must on everybody’s wish list. In celebration of The Queen’s reign, blood, sweat, and tears were put into this packaging to leave a lasting impression on anyone we gets a hold of the gem. From gold filigree that scales the bottle’s neck to blind embossing of Freebooter’s emblem, this bottle has it all and then some.

To make the packaging more impactful, two opposing aesthetics were put head to head to create an interesting blend of elegance and rustic, corsair-style design. The white cotton paper with shades of turquoise and gold represents The Queen and all of her kingship, while the Freebooter’s label, deckled and worn, represents the rebellious nature that comes with being Freebooter.

- "On the commemoration of The Queen’s reign, the West Indian Sugar Cane Captain, Lord Bulsara, wanted to present to Her Royal Majesty with the finest rhums from his family distillery. 

- It is unknown where in The Caribbean Sea the Bay’s Brotherhood intercepted the precious cargo, but it is certain that the so called Bay’s Brotherhood members were one and all despicable riffraff, buccaneers who dishonored The Queen’s delicate Rhum. 

- The Freebooters eagerly tagged the bottles to peddle them. They set them with a skull, the badge of the Bay’s Brotherhood, renamed as ?Freebooter? the Rhum of The Queen and rejoiced in their misdeed with the following inscription:

Bay’s Brotherhood Freebooter Liberated Rhum

"Seized from her Majesty’s Fleet. This bottle corresponds to the consignment of the Captain’s Booty. 

Much appreciation to Her Majesty for her largesse... 

- The bottles disappeared swiftly, once their origin was revealed word spread. From wealthy figures to bandits, everyone followed the "Freed Rhum of The Queen" 

The legend of Freebooter sails the seas, and its fame can only be overcome by its authentic taste. Will there be any hidden bottle left intact to be discovered ...?"

"Our graphic proposal plays with two opposites aesthetics: the sophistication of the nobility on The Queen’s label, against the rough and improvised corsair’ relabeling. 

- A white cotton paper presents the label of The Queen, white with shades of turquoise and gold typical through classicism. Different stamping and embossing processes with metallic inks give a quality twist to this label common in that period. 

- We cover the neck of the bottle with an elaborate classically inspired serigraph print using metallic inks, which present the bottle as "Tribute to her Royal Majesty The Queen" This detail enriches the storytelling as it achieves a striking packaging, clearly Premium. 

- We create the freebooter’s balance superimposing a light ripped paper, irregular and of reused appearance, with two colors of black shaping a skull. - The serigraphy highlights the new origin of the rhum: "Freed in The Caribbean Sea". 

- On the reverse of this removable label, we entice the consumer to deepen the story of the product on its website, with a typography in the pirate style with black ink."
