Glenlivet Cipher bottle design, by NB Studio


NB Studio has designed the packaging for a limited edition version of whisky brand Glenlivet.

The Glenlivet Cipher bottle aims to be mysterious and enigmatic, says the consultancy, with an opaque black colour, no description of taste, smell or colour, and no age indication.

The outer packaging uses black and silver foiling on black paper, which aims to create a “sleek, contemporary finish”, says NB Studio.

The look aims to mimic methods used throughout history to send secret messages, depicted by how the bottle’s label typography looks like the code produced by an enigma machine.
