Label Apeel has more reason than most to raise a glass to victory this year. The printer in Leicester rolled out labels for Copperfield Dry Gin – a cocktail of different substrates and print methods finished off with super-fine foiling that captured every intricate detail of the company emblem.

This year’s client cruise also included Emissary Prosecco - a clean, beautiful label with powerful punch - Cooper-King Distillery, and Gosnells Mead, the latter’s label being printed four colours with a second hit of black to give extra density. Sharp, clean foiling meanwhile left no excuse for blurred vision from any of the judges, all of whom who agreed: “Samples showed impressive accuracy with both foiling and spot UV. The entire entry demonstrated innovative finishing all round.”

Last year’s category winner almost doubled up this year with labels for Gauldrons’ special edition ‘vatted’ Malt Whisky. Bradford’s Label Makers used Fasson super-white opaque material to contrast dense black and give an aura of mystique. “High quality printing perfectly complemented by stunning finishing,” said judges of the sample labels, also for Robinsons’ Hallowed beer and Snowdonia Gin.
