We positioned Masons as 'the definitive gin brand'. Choosing to steer clear of the contrived faux heritage approach that many gin brands follow, we created an identity inspired by Masons’ meticulous attitude and dedication to their distilling process.
Masons needed a look and feel that would convey a sense of timeless modernity and set the benchmark for other gin brands to aspire to. At the heart of our design is an elegant copper crown ‘M’ logo, representing the integral partnership between Masons’ two founders.
Complementing the crown, the proud ‘of Yorkshire’ wordmark anchors the brand to its Yorkshire roots whilst opening Masons up to a wealth of new business opportunities.
To build a brand that would stand the test of time, every element needed to be so distinctly Masons that it could never be replicated or mistaken. Inspired by the arches in the crown logo, our bespoke bottle design includes an intricate pattern that celebrates the uncompromising quality and purity of Masons gins.
Masons makes gin the right way, using only real botanicals for a subtle and authentic flavour. So we gave them a genuine, no-nonsense tone of voice (with a double measure of passion) to reflect the love and care that goes into every bottle.
Bringing the brand to life off pack, the messaging showcases gin in all its glory, inviting customers to enjoy a glass ‘The Masons Way’.
Masons are a Yorkshire brand, but their ambitions are global. Considering how every touchpoint would elevate the customer experience, we created a rich brand world that not only tells the Masons story, but allows flexibility for future growth.
