Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon is one of the world’s finest spirits. COHO Creative designs special packaging for a limited edition bottling sold at Whisky Live Paris. The design celebrates Warehouse H, the legendary Blanton’s aging house. It portrays Warehouse H’s extreme seasonality critical to fine bourbon through watercolor depictions of each season on the sides of the carton. Warehouse H is clad in copper, which appears throughout the design in embossing, seals, inks, and more. The aesthetic is one of exquisite luxury and supports increased prices in the secondary collector’s market.
