Created in the heart of the city, Leeds Gin is rapidly ascending in popularity in the world of Gin and beyond. Leeds Gin is created with a unique mix of botanicals including Yorkshire forced rhubarb as a key ingredient. This is a true artisan gin, handmade in a traditional copper alembic still and infused with that special kind of Northern spirit.
When we were approached to create a new website for Leeds Gin we jumped at the chance. We were given creative freedom over every aspect of the site which was a great opportunity to show off how creative we can get with our web design projects.
With the help of our friend, photographer Tracey Welch (www.traceywelch.co.uk) we shot a suite of images (and had an impromptu ‘tasting session’) to help bring our initial designs to life.
Everything was about the gin, from the impactful image of the bottle on the homepage, to the key ingredients gliding across the page, and the cocktails page with its array of subtly colourful images of thirst inducing Leeds Gin cocktails.
We wanted the Leeds Gin online experience to be simple and straight forwards in usability with a striking, contemporary visual appearance. We chose WordPress to achieve this, given its versatility and the ease of which the client can make changes and updates.
