The Devil's Keep Ultra Rare Single Malt Irish Whiskey by Tiago Russo The inaugural release from The Craft Irish Whiskey Co., The Devil’s Keep Experience Box has been created with the most luxurious attention to every single detail, embodied by a dark stained oak finish and brass detailing. It all starts with the strong minimalist visuals on the outside, locked by an ancient Japanese lock with a dedicated key stored at the back. Only by unleashing the experience box from its ancient lock, you will be able to immerse into the contents inside, where dark burgundy leather walls hold the tasting accessories, crucial to experiencing the Devil’s in full.

The Taoscan Irish Whiskey Packaging by Tiago Russo To stand out from the crowd you need to be extraordinary. And The Taoscan is no ordinary product: there is no whiskey on earth like it. Designed for the finest venues, stealing the limelight on the bar. The stand and accessories were designed to offer the perfect whiskey serve: its open, 360 degrees design allows it to be viewed from every angle, deploying envy from everyone else in the bar. The walnut stand, the detailed copper stems that lead up to a leather handle, the obsidian or the thoroughly crafted bottle and glasses; every part of The Tasocan is the pinnacle of design excellence.

The Aodh Irish Whiskey Packaging by Tiago Russo The Aodh inhabits a world of darkness and glamour, where lights are low and passions soar. Drawing on this mysticism, it tells of a time after dark, its form a mesmerising helix that bewitches and enchants. The Aodh's stand illuminates the bottle from behind, the opal LED trim sending golden beams spinning through the whiskey before dancing off the mirrored surface of the frame. Harnessing the interplay of day and night, the polished golden curved surfaces reflect the light, while the textured and knurled details absorb it, generating a glow that places The Aodh firmly in the spotlight.
