Deluxe Distillery created the labels for the Blind Tiger Gin, which reveals a golden tiger's face wearing an eye patch atop a navy blue bottle of gin. The overall inspiration for the gin and label come from the prohibition period.

In honor of prohibition, this bottle pays tribute to the unique distribution practices of gin. During the alcohol ban, a speakeasy would sell tickets for consumers to see a blind tiger in the back room of a bar where they would receive a complimentary gin cocktail. Today, the Blind Tiger Gin is made in the back room of a secluded distillery in Western Belgium.

The label and creative process honor the historical past of gin. This particular spirit is hand-crafted with notes of highly unusual botanicals such as malted barley and cubeb pepper.
