The Heart of Speyside

BenRiach, The Heart of Speyside

Celebrating The Heart of Speyside.

For the best part of the last decade, the loft has been delighted to work on a number of beautiful packaging designs for Speyside Whisky Distiller, BenRiach.

The collaboration began with the transformative BenRiach 10Yr – launched to celebrate a decade of the organisation under new ownership, this was followed with the incredibly bold Cask Strength, the adventurous Quarter Cask and most recently the innovative Triple Distilled.

In between, we’ve created Single Cask variations, marketing communications, age statements, marks for peated versions and several as-of-yet unreleased designs of some very special expressions.

Each and every design, pushing the envelope of what’s possible, each time more explorative and every time bringing the ‘The Heart of Speyside’ theme, that little bit closer to home.

Stunning whisky and if you don’t mind us saying – not bad design too.

Check out our collaboration with BenRiach…

A series of random sketches from our studio for our work on many different expressions – sketching remains at the heart of the loft process.




Our team introduced a product-design, rapid prototyping approach to the creative process using paper and card to test ideas much more quickly. 

Some very kind testimonials from the teams at BenRiach and Brown Forman.
