UK-based converter The Label Makers has collaborated with Cardiff-based Hensol Castle Distillery to produce distinctive labels for four flagship spirits.

Hensol Castle Distillery gin labels

The labels were produced using combination of full-colour digital print, hot foil, UV varnishes and screen embossing

The labels, characterised by intricate details and high-grade materials, utilised a combination of substrates including a FSC certified luxury paper, with the addition of two hot foils. Produced using  combination of full-colour digital print, hot foil, UV varnishes and screen embossing, ‘the meticulous process has ensured that each label fully enhances the bottle’s appeal.’

Dan Wilson, business development manager at The Label Makers, explained, ‘We worked closely with the distiller and designer to extract as much as possible from the design detail, utilising intricate lines, foils, emboss and colours to ensure the labels have great stand-out utilising a tactile paper stock. The result really makes the product.’

The Label Makers is a user of both Xeikon’s dry toner digital printing technology and Durst’s 1200dpi inkjet digital label printing equipment.

Located within the cellars of the prestigious Grade 1 listed Hensol Castle, the family-owned enterprise operates a distillery, contract bottling plant, gin school and visitor attraction.

James Lewis, head of operations at Hensol Castle Distillery, commented, ‘The Label Makers’ labels has made a great bottle look absolutely fantastic, helping the product stand out in a competitive market. They have an incredible ability to bring our design aspirations to life.’

In the near future, The Label Makers is expected to be involved in the upcoming launch of new products from Hensol Castle Distillery, including spiced rum, cherry spiced rum and premium vodka.
