A distillery fire has crippled our stock and our facilities, can you help us rise from the ashes with an identity as distinctive as our gin?
The category is flooded with faux-heritage brands and cheap gimmicks. To cut-through they needed a brand that would reflect their purist ethos as a pioneer of high quality, timeless, small batch gin.
Build a brand the way Cathy and Karl make gin – the Masons way.
Harnessing their tenacious Yorkshire spirit, we worked with Masons to create 'the definitive gin brand', one that people would love and ask for by name.
£4M Growth in the first 12 months.
We created a sense of timeless modernity with an elegant copper crown ‘M’ logo that represents the partnership between the two founders – while the wordmark anchors the brand to its Yorkshire roots.
“Masons take the time to make gin the right way, so we treated every element of their brand with the same attention to detail. A key part of this was the bottle, where we took inspiration from the shape of traditional botanical greenhouses to create a bespoke design as distinctive and timeless as the liquid inside it.”
For the messaging, we gave them a no-nonsense voice, distilled with a double shot of passion, to communicate the love and care that goes into every bottle.
“After the fire, Masons were starting from ground zero; so they needed a firm foundation to rebuild their brand. We set a system that helped the brand move beyond their gin heartland, developed an ownable photography style, limited edition pack formats and whole new ranges.”
“Just like us, Robot Food know the value of doing things properly – without compromise. From the start they took the time to understand us and the nuances of our business and have delivered a stunning rebrand that’ll stand the test of time.”
