The challenge

Imagine capturing the essence of an 18th-century Devon smuggler's tale in a bottle of spiced rum. That was the exciting challenge we faced with Lugger Rum when it came to label design and bottle shape. Based at Lyme Bay Winery, Lugger Rum needed a design to reflect its high-end status and rich history. Our task? To whisk consumers away on a journey through time to Devon’s smuggling days, enticing them with a blend of sophistication and intrigue.
