The packaging of this Gin  was designed by Studio 32 North. Inspired by bitter bottles from the 18th and 19th century, Uncle Val’s bottle was manufactured in Italy and possesses strong, tapered shoulders and a dark green, antique hue. The label is also reminiscent of old world spirit labels, featuring an ornate cursive font, a tastefully understated color palette and a Roman coin styled illustration of Uncle Val. Each bottle have one of three bottom labels featuring some of Uncle Val’s more notable sayings. Together, the bottle, labels and, of course, gin evoke a dedication to craftsmanship that is still very much alive in the old world of Uncle Val’s Italy. Uncle Val’s botanical gin combines juniper, cucumber, lemon, sage and lavender to give it a unique flavor. The new spirit is now available nationwide in restaurants and high-end shops for $35-$40 a bottle. ( 5elected from www.lovelypackage.com )
