Caskade is a progressive Glasgow-based collective specialising in limited edition drinks releases. Working in collaboration with celebrated artists and world-renowned drinks makers, Caskade produces bespoke small batch bottlings alongside delivering dynamic live cultural events.

I worked with Caskade to design their core brand identity and architecture along with the labelling and packaging for their first two releases. Working with their in-house team I developed a framework that allows for true creativity to flow through each planned bottling.

The first release was “Born In a Storm” by Scottish music legends Deacon Blue. Distilled at a secret location on Orkney and matured for 13 years in a single cask, this whisky has been finished in ex-Oloroso sherry oak and was chosen by the band to celebrate the 35th anniversary of their highly acclaimed debut album Raintown.

The second release from Caskade is “Grace Notes” and is a Teaninich 10 year old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. This bottling was produced to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Celtic Connections music festival. Glasgow’s annual celebration of folk, roots and world music boats over 2,100 musicians from around the world and brings the city to life for 18 days every January. During that time, there are concerts, ceilidhs, talks, art exhibitions, workshops and free events.
