Vanilla, oak, and malt combine in this heavenly spirit from Lucas Bols. Van Heertum Design VHD developed the limited edition packaging for this Dutch gin that comes in its own wooden box.
“Lucas Bols, creating spirits since 1575, presents Single Barrel Bols Genever, Barrel Strength. This very special blend aged for 8 years in one single oak cask and was kept in ‘het Paradijs,’ the place where the master distiller of Lucas Bols keeps the most beautiful spirits.”
“For this special limited edition Bols asked VHD to create the packaging design. Craftsmanship, history and quality are very important features for all Bols products, which are successfully translated to this limited edition design. Next to the bottle and the labels, VHD designed a tailor made wooden box.”
“The Single Barrel is filled by hand directly from the barrel. To symbolize this craft, VHD also wrote and numbered one of the labels by hand (only 400 bottles have been made), making this project even more exclusive.”
For true lovers of fine spirits, Bols Single Barrel Genever is something to covet. The outstanding details on the label, such as fine script, and the limited edition box speak to the specific process through which the spirit is made. Upon opening the box, the consumer sees the rich amber hue of the gin which is surrounded by light wood on the inside. This makes them feel closer to the distilling process. Silver foil accents add an element of sophistication and add a bit of vibrancy to the otherwise dark, rich packaging.
