To cel­e­brate 239 years of brew­ing in the Dorset coun­try­side, Bad­ger Ales wanted to pro­duce a limited-run Col­lec­tor’s Edi­tion bot­tle as an in­vest­ment-worth piece of art in its own right. BrandO­pus was briefed to cre­ate a piece of pack­ag­ing that re­flects the same care, pre­ci­sion and in­no­va­tion that goes into mak­ing the beer it­self.

Although four years in the mak­ing, the re­sult­ing idea was beau­ti­fully sim­ple, us­ing the shape of the bot­tle to rep­re­sent a bad­ger’s head, dec­o­rated with its dis­tinc­tive hand-painted black-and-white stripes and fin­ished with a glossy black wax ‘nose’ around the cork.

Made from un­treated craft stock pa­per and leaves col­lected from the lo­cal Dorset woodland, the pack­ag­ing sub­tly evokes a cosy, leafy sett for the bad­ger to call home.
