Lussa Gin packaging by Front Page

December 22nd, 2016 by retail design blog


Lussa Gin was founded in 2015 by three women from the Isle of Jura, off Scotland’s west coast. The gin is made in Ardlussa, on the north end of Jura, where the terrain is tough and the weather is unforgiving – but that’s where the adventure begins! The botanicals in Lussa Gin are found locally, either foraged from the wilderness or home grown by Lussa’s founders.


This wilderness and location directly informed the design of the Lussa bottle, from the traditional, hand drawn pen and ink-style illustration of the local Ardlussa hills, to the bronze colour palette inspired by the heather and deer found on the island, and its bespoke tartan ‘drip catcher’.


The ultra condensed Univers of the Lussa Gin logotype and accompanying lock-up mirrors the slender bottle. We also wanted to highlight the gender of the founders without appearing gimmicky, and achieved this by adopting the device of the distillers’ signatures – more commonly found in whisky labelling.
