Based in North Carolina, Fae Nectar is a mead, honey winery rooted in high-fantasy and escapism. The honey wine branding and packaging design illustration features two fae holding amphora mead vessels being poured into a unity chalice. The style was intentionally illustrated to feel a bit earthy and vintage. Gold foil was added through out the illustration for pops of shine and luxe that lead the eye through the hierarchy of the design.
As a new brewery and brand, we wanted Fae Nectar’s packaging design to feel established out of the gate, so it merited space on the shelf, and tempted customers to pick up the bottle. Their first batch sold out within the first few weeks, and they are securing whole sale accounts with regional gourmet grocery store chains.
Fae Nectar Founder
“We’re on the shelf and selling great... I can’t tell you all what an amazing job you did with our bottle and helping us with our branding, and just guiding us through this process. The feedback on the bottle has been amazing. Our sales are amazing. The ease with which we’re able to go get on the shelf is amazing. People who have never drank mead, retailers who have never worked with mead… are seeing our bottle and taking chances on us… I’m seeing the wisdom you were able to impart in this process as our consultants and guides."
