Dubh Glas Distillery’s latest white whiskey is double distilled in a copper pot still with only the finest British Columbian barley. The fine spirit, designed by Hired Guns Creative, is a reflection of the premium quality single malt that is produced and aged in oak barrels at the distillery’s location in Okanagan Valley.
“The design for Virgin Spirits, Dubh Glas Distillery’s new white whiskey, is an homage to early American banknotes and roll-fed printing techniques, with fine linework in repeating patterns creating subtle moiré textures. Swirling flourishes and classic hand-lettering lend the label a timeless air, with a repeating vermillion seal and an elegant cap strap to tie it all together.”
The linework, font, and even color choices are reminiscent of old government documents and money. A faded label and extravagant script emphasize the history of the distillery as well as their respect for tradition and their process. The clear liquor bottle is sealed with a sticker that states the batch number, making each bottle unique and special to the buyer.
