New Spanish Sherry Releases
A limited series of four sherry finished single malt whiskies has been designed by Craig Mackinlay of Breeze Creative: Fino, Manzanilla, Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez. The spirit for each was distilled on the same day, matured using traditional American Oak casks then transferred to the four different sherry butts for over 3 years. The CuatroSeries, as it is known, takes its name from the Spanish word for four and was launched on 3 September by Graham Eunson, Distillery Manager.
He commented “We are constantly striving to innovate and push boundaries and I believe Cuatro is a great example of something yet again different from Tomatin Distillery”.
Only 1,500 bottles of each finish in the Cuatro Range are to be released, retailing at £49.99.
Working with the bespoke Tomatin bottle and carton template designed by Craig Mackinlay when he rebranded the Tomatin range, he selected a deep deboss wood grain effect for the packaging with a fluted foil and subtle varnishes.
Jennifer Masson, Tomatin Marketing Manager, said: “The Cuatro Series is a unique release from Tomatin and as such we wanted the packaging to reflect that. Our brief was to create a premium design for the range that, while maintaining key elements from the standard Tomatin pack, clearly showcased the strong sherry influence. I believe Craig from Breeze Creative has delivered on this with a classy, elegant design.”
