Diageo asked us to design the packaging for Smirnoff Peppermint Twist, a limited edition peppermint flavoured vodka for the US market. Inspired by the colours and peppermint flavour associated with the festive winter season, we wrapped the entire bottle up in striking premium red and white stripes and added a twist of cool peppermint green. To emphasise the flavour, scented inks release a mouth-watering scent of peppermint when scratched, adding a sense of novelty that's fitting for this time of year. The white scented ink has a frost-like texture which adds to the tactility of the bottle.
