UK – For the launch of British spirit brand, Langtons Gin, a special bottle that combines the latest design technology with imagination and craftsmanship was created.
Langtons is a distinguished gin crafted from pure natural spring water from the Lake District. Developed by UK’s Allied Glass, the bottle was inspired from a piece of slate found at the heart of Langtons, under Skiddaw mountain. It was resting on the slopes of Skiddaw over the ancient acquifer, the natural water source for Langtons No 1 gin.
Trying to capture the Lake District in a bottle, it was essential that it reflected slate contours, one proudly being the profile of Skiddaw on the front face of the bottle. Furthermore, the colour of the bottle emulates the properties of wet slate, the greens, blues and blacks on different days in the Lake District.
The classic, stand alone quality of the gin is also reflected by the tapered rectangular shape of the bottle with a soft curved finish, which pays homage to the original gin flask from the early 1700s.
