It’s Gold for Seedlip’s Premium Drinks Packaging Solution – Harpers Design Awards 2019

Seedlip (the company who solved the dilemma “what to drink when you’re not drinking”), have been a customer of Saxon Packaging since 2015 after being referred by another customer in the drinks industry.

They launched to great acclaim in November 2015, in which they were an immediate sell-out in London’s Selfridges and is now served in over 250 Michelin star restaurants.

From what began with mainly mail-order and transit packaging, Seedlip quickly identified the need for high-end luxury gift packaging to encase their non-alcoholic distilled spirits.

Over the years, Seedlip’s range of luxury premium drinks packaging solutions have produced some extraordinary packaging designs.

One of our most recent inquiries came from Ivana Walthorne, at Seedlip for something truly special. It was to produce a single 70cl bottle luxury gift pack for each of their signature distilled non-alcoholic spirits.

What resulted were three, absolutely wonderful, packaging designs.

The three packaging designs you see above, would not have been possible without the collaboration with our, in-group, Litho printers at SK Litho UK (CRP). Whom with the use of their Bobst Visioncut Power Register, they were able to print & die-cut the sheets to the level of precision required in order to produce the desired ‘halo’ effect.

A special thanks to Matt Watts, General Manager at SK Litho UK, who was incredibly accommodating to support us with this project.

*To achieve the desired high-quality premium look, these single 70cl gift packs were printed using the Litho printing process and further embellished with a soft touch laminate and foil blocking to give them the most finest of print finishes.

We thought that each design looked fantastic and that they would be a lovely example for to include in our packaging and design awards entries this year. It was a very difficult decision to only choose one design, but in the end, we decided to put forward the Grove 42 Halo Gift Box (Citrus).

We are delighted to inform you that this premium drinks packaging solution for Seedlip’s Grove 42 Halo Gift Box (Citrus) has recently won Gold in the Harpers Design Awards 2019. (Harpers Wine & Spirit).

This is a fantastic achievement for all involved, and we are thrilled that this packaging design has been recognised for its remarkable design in the individual product category. Results have been published in the December 2019 issue of Harpers Wine & Spirit and you can also visit to view the full list of results there.
