Antalis toasts to success with Shivering Mountain

Antalis recently linked up The Allotment and Shivering Mountain Gin to add an innovative new look to the bottle label of the company’s premium gins.

Antalis’ Curious Collection Metallics papers were used to decorate bottles, brochure covers and business cards

The project saw Antalis’ Curious Collection Metallics papers used to add more colour to the bottles, while the papers were also used for a brochure cover and business cards.

Curious Collection Metallics Ink was used for the brochure cover, business cards and the bottle label for the brand’s Premium Dry Gin, while Curious Metallics Red Lacquer was used for the Premium Pink Gin labels.

James Backhurst, co-founder and creative director of The Allotment has worked with Antalis through his career, and says in addition to unique colours, Curious Collection Metallics papers also offer environmental benefits.

The entire Curious Collection, including Curious Metallics, is carbon balanced by Antalis in partnership with World Land Trust.

“We did lots of testing; the area of foiling on the brochure needed four blocks to ensure we retained the pattern details,” Backhurst comments. “The product performed brilliantly on both the heaviest and lightest weights. 

“We also tested to see if the alcohol would make the colour run on the stock. The product’s sustainability was also important – at The Allotment, we try to reduce the carbon footprint as much as we can.”
