Arran 21 YO – A Luxury Packaging Awards Finalist

Here’s a closer look at one of our packaging solutions recently nominated as a Finalist in the category ‘Luxury Drinks: Secondary Pack’ at this year’s Luxury Packaging Awards

Packaging for the Arran 21-Year-Old Single Malt (by Isle of Arran Distillers), produced by IPL Packaging and designed by London agency, Stranger & Stranger, reflects the brand’s contemporary new look in the form of an elegant paper-wrapped rigid board pack.

Featuring a wraparound lid and magnetic closure, embellished with foil and embossed branding details, the pack also incorporates an icon in the shape of Arran, a pair of the island’s native eagles (which nest in the beautiful village of Lochranza where the distillery was built in 1995), as well as a rippled effect that reflects the distillery’s water source and island’s mountain waterfalls. 

Braille lettering features on both the embossed lid and the bottle label. The Arran logo is repeated in deboss on side of the pack. A debossed paper-wrapped cover sheet on the inside of the pack echoes the rippled effect of water, with its ridge detailing adding an interesting textural element.  The Single Malt’s new-look bottle, with its warm ochre-colored contents, is held in place by an EVA fitment and extracted with the use of a grosgrain ribbon bottle release.
