Bold design for Henstone Distillery's first whisky

English whisky maker the Henstone Distillery has unveiled a new label design from manufacturer The Label Makers.

The distillery, based in Oswestry, Shropshire, commissioned The Label Makers to design a new look for its single malt whisky. 

After working with Henstone on labels for previous gin and vodka releases, the Label Makers looked to retain the style and shape found across the distillery's existing spirits range.

The new design was digitally printed on a textured cotton material with added gold hot foil detailing and flashes of high-gloss varnish. The label was designed by Stirling-based Pocket Rocket Creative.

Henstone began whisky production soon after its still was installed in November 2017 and released its first batch, aged in a mix of ex-Bourbon and ex-sherry casks, earlier in 2021.

Chris Toller, co-founder and director of Henstone Distillery, said: "The family of products look great side by side and the whisky label, being darker, really looks the part. 

"I really cannot fault The Label Makers - their service, delivery timescales, quality and consistency are hard to beat and from the start of this project there have been no issues whatsoever. We have more projects in the pipeline and The Label Makers will definitely be part of our plans going forward."

Kevin Lyons, from The Label Makers, added: "It really is fantastic to see English whisky enjoying some prominence and we are delighted to work with Chris and the Henstone team in producing their labels."
