It's an exciting day at Jamhot as we launch a new distillery brand to the world - for Scotland’s North Uist Distillery Co.
Based on the Hebridean Island of North Uist, the distillery has been founded by local duo Jonny Ingledew and Kate MacDonald to produce some of Scotland’s finest spirits. Having grown up on the island, and progressed their careers on the mainland, the ambitious young couple are returning to their Hebridean home to bring new jobs and opportunities to North Uist with the launch of their new venture.
The distillery, the first ever legal one on the island, launches with Downpour Gin - a Scottish Dry Gin with bold citrus & spice flavours. The distillery then begins their journey to create some special Scottish Single Malts as they construct a brand new purpose built Whisky distillery.
Taking inspiration from the distillery’s beautiful Hebridean surroundings and use of natural island ingredients, the brand is based on simplicity, plain speaking, quality materials and punches of colour and flavour.
Jamhot collaborated with the distillery founders to develop the new brand strategy & positioning alongside the developing design & copy for the distillery and Downpour Gin launch materials including packaging, website, digital assets and launch campaign.
It’s been an absolute pleasure to work on this project, and we can’t wait to visit the island for a well deserved gin and dram soon!
