If ferociously snarling mammals on your whiskey labels don’t deter but rather beckon, perhaps you’ve already been introduced to 3 Floyds Distilling’s Divine Rite. For the barrel-aged variety, a lunar-lupine theme of metallic copper wolves emerging from a coal-black background. For the white lightning, a transparent bottle of floating, onyx voltage bolts, and electrified tigers. Artist Conor Nolan’s illustrations both terrify and delight.
To play off the rounded shoulders of the bottle’s profile, curves were brought into the die-cut front and back labels and were further emphasized with arced typography. The rest of the whiskeys’ elements command their spaces without hesitation, as any self-respecting, heavy-metal whiskey would.
