Double Awards in The Harpers Design Awards 2020 for Drinks Packaging

The Harpers Design Awards have long been revered as one of the leading drink design-focused awards in the UK, aimed at recognising the best in the industry.

With our ever-expanding packaging offering in the drinks market, we were excited to be able to enter this award last year for the very first time with Seedlip’s Grove 42 Halo gift box and we were extremely proud to have won Gold in the individual product category.

Throughout 2020 (despite the covid pandemic), we have been able to create so many extraordinary examples of packaging, that it made choosing which ones to enter a very difficult task! With great deliberation, we managed to narrow it down to two entries for this year in the individual product category. 

We’re delighted to inform you that the results have come in and we have come away with not one, but two medals for this year’s awards!

Winning Bronze:

Sailor’s Home – The Horizon Gift Box

Sailors Home The Horizon Gift Box 

Sailor’s Home luxury gift packaging was created for their 10 year old premium whiskey, named ‘The Horizon’. With  internal and external printing using the lithographic print process, further embellishments of luxury print finishes were added including; gold foil blocking and matt lamination.

This stunning packaging design was produced in reflection of the Sailor’s Home brand and ethos, as well as oozing class. You can read more about The Horizon packaging here.

Winning Silver:

Pale Fox Wines Ltd – Luxury Gift Box

Pale Fox Wines Ltd Luxury Gift Box 

Pale Fox Wines Ltd are no strangers to luxury, having what they claim (and we quite believe it) ‘the finest prosecco in the world’ but they also may now have one of the most beautiful packaging of 2020… as this stunning packaging design was awarded Silver!

With double sided litho, soft touch laminate and foil blocking all coming together to produce the most extraordinary visual experiences, this luxury single bottle gift pack is nothing short of a rare gem. You can find out more about Pale Fox’s luxury gift packaging here.

This is a fantastic achievement for us at Saxon and for all involved. We are thrilled that these packaging designs have been recognised for their remarkable designs in the individual product category and that these awards support the work we are doing at Saxon and in the drinks market.

We would also like to congratulate all those other award winners and other award entry contestants.

Full results are to be published in the December 2020 issue of Harpers Wine & Spirit, in the meantime you can also visit to see the full list of results.

“In one of the most uncertain and difficult years for many industries across the globe, it has been very warming to see that brands are still producing extraordinary designs and investing in their product packaging for the benefits of their customers. I think I can speak on behalf of all the team here in saying that we are delighted at the results!” Mike Impson, Sales Director – Saxon Packaging.
