Blackwater Distillery

Project overview

Blackwater Distillery is situated on the banks of the Blackwater River, just outside Cappoquin in beautiful west Waterford. We have been working with them since they first set up in 2013. We designed their brand identity and all their marketing collateral, including labels, leaflets, merchandise and website. It’s been great sharing the journey with them, watching them grow from humble beginnings to international acclaim.

These guys are naturally very good when it comes to marketing, and do most of it themselves. That said, whenever they have a need for photography or copywriting, they turn to us for advice and inspiration. One of the great things about working with Blackwater is that they include us in everything. It means that, even if we’re not directly involved in every aspect of their work, when the time comes and they need us, we’re fully up to speed and don’t need to be briefed.

In the client's own words

As we'll be sharing shelf space with multi-national gins and whiskies, we needed very strong branding to quickly get our story across to customers. Passion were great at wrangling our ideas, knocking them into shape and adding their own sprinkle of magic dust. Ours is an on-going story and we look forward to working with the team at Passion in the months and years ahead.
