Royston Labels bag Label of the Year for Redsmith Gin

Royston Labels receives Label of the Year Award 2017

The Royston Labels team are celebrating another industry success this morning after walking away from the UK Packaging Awards 2017 with Label of the Year.

Attending the ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House last night, the Royston team were delighted to be the recipients of the award, which honoured their work on the packaging for Redsmith’s London Dry Gin.

Designed by Fifteen and manufactured by Royston Labels on a combination press, this elegant, textured label boasts a rich black finish and embossed hot foil branding. The crowning glory of Royston’s Redsmith packaging, however, is the inside of the label, which has been cleverly printed with the company branding and a pattern of monochrome circles. Visible through the glass, this bold pattern provides a striking background to the front of the label, shifting and swirling with the movement of the gin.

Though the Royston team knew they had a strong contender on their hands, the competition was certainly stiff! Other labels in the category – which is open to any label printed using any method – included Garage Creative’s art nouveau wine label for Les Estivales Rose and Coveris’ clever packaging for Aldi’s Aberdeen Angus sirloin steaks.

With yet another award under their belt (in July they picked up the trophy for Best in Show at the FINAT Awards) it looks as though Royston Labels are set to end the year on a high. Over the next few months, the company will be moving into brand new premises and launching their Label’Glass service, which allows for pre-made glassware to be embellished with raised designs.
