Whippet scoops top design prize at the Australian Gin Awards.

From a field of 63 entries, the judges distilled their picks down until they’d chosen their favourite. Our design for Nosferatu was the only Gold awarded in its category, taking out the top prize for ‘Best Australian Gin Bottle Design’.

But it doesn’t just look good, it tastes good, too. The judges clearly thought the same, awarding Nosferatu a Bronze in the ‘Best Dry Gin’ category.

Congratulations to the team at Nosferatu who have had a scarily successful 9-months since launch, with their delicious blood-orange gin creeping into over 200 bars, restaurants and bottle shops around Australia, and over 3,000 bottles sold.

Here’s what the judges had to say about our design: Great brand story, really fun and clear. The judges loved the contrast of the ‘penny dreadful’ silhouette with the traditional style castle, and the tie-in between the product and the brand. Most importantly we all wanted to try the gin.

“Everyone loves the brand identity and bottle design Whippet created for us. It stands out on the shelf, it’s fun, bold, original and just a bit spooky. And we couldn’t have asked for a better agency to work with."

Rory Smith, Owner and Founder, Nosferatu Distillery
