Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin approached us to design a gin tray for Ashford Castle that would be used to serve their gin experience.
The tray was to include; Gunpowder bottle; 12 botanicals, the Gunpowder map and 3 gin glasses.
The challenge was to merge to premium brands on a single tray.
The result is a hand finished walnut tray with copper and leather handles and a laser etched surface.
The glasses appear to be floating at the front of the tray and are at a height to encourage aroma, ease of use and for easy visual inspection.
In addition to this, Ashford Castle wanted a presentation tray that would sit comfortably alongside the serving tray that would be part of the same suite. This tray was created using the same walnut as the gin tasting tray with Ashford Castle’s logo laser etched onto the base.
