Whiskeysmith is the encourager of the unexpected.
Whiskeysmith launched its brand in October 2020 with a new and unique type of product: a flavored whiskey infused with real, high quality, and intentional ingredients.
As a new spirits brand pushing the boundaries with craft-first infused whiskey, Whiskeysmith has the opportunity to be a castle on the hill for flavored whiskeys in a persistently old-fashioned category.
The party starters ready to discover new drinks in a world where they’re not only frequenting bars, but also feel empowered to host.

Outcomes & Reflections
A winning pitch
We established this winning concept from a brief given to us by the client Whiskeysmith. Against 5 other teams, we were able to impress the clients enough to be “dubbed” the winners! My team and I worked together flawlessly, and the experience was something that allowed me to grow as a designer.
