Dogfish Head Distilling Co. partners with Saxco International LLC to create new packaging
Dogfish Head launches new spirits portfolio
Dogfish Head Distilling Co. unveiled new packaging for its new made-from-scratch spirits line, which includes Dogfish Head Analog Vodka, Dogfish Head Compelling Gin and Dogfish Head Whole Leaf Gin. To help create its packaging design, which is commensurate with the quality taste and rich goodness of its new premium vodka and gins, the company partnered with Saxco International LLC. Working closely with the Dogfish’s design and marketing team, Saxco created a high-quality, square-shaped private mold for the flint 750-ml bottle for the three new spirits with flat shoulders and a premium thick glass base, the company says. The bottle also incorporates a prominent embossed Dogfish Head logo on its right-hand side along with heat-applied, two-color graphics on the front of the bottles. The concepts and designs were created by Dogfish Head Lead Designer Tim Parrott, who also provided the graphic designs for the pressure-sensitive, two-color labels that are applied above the heat-applied graphics, it adds. The bottle is finished off with a Mahogany wood top synthetic cork over-fitted with a tamper-evident tax stripe. Made with 100 percent brewers malt and proprietary “Doggie” yeast, Analog Vodka is 80-proof and contains the sweetness of caramelized sugar and malted barley with cleaning minerality, while Dogfish Head Compelling Gin is 88-proof and is distilled using the peel and flesh of citrus with hints of juniper and cinnamon, the company says. Additionally, the 90-proof Dogfish Head Whole Leaf Gin doses whole-leaf hops into each step of the gin distillation process.
