Rutland Cider Company

The Rutland Cider company was started by The Grainstore Brewery in an attempt to become a well known cider brand that celebrates the culture of the small county. We were invited to create an identity for their new brand

Rutland Cider Company


With no previous branding in place, our designers were tasked with creating an identity which aimed to have a "reassuringly expensive" feel. The branding needed to consider the core products that would be rolled out as bottles and bar pump clips.


The Rutland Cider company was started to celebrate the small county and it's rich culture. Through phases one and two, the identity was developed simultaneously with the cider range. Imagining how the packaging would fit around the identity created a seamless approach that allowed The Rutland Cider Company to envision how the end product looked. The final designs display an intricate use of illustration to depict iconic imagery of Rutland and the fruit used in each flavoured drink.


As well as designing for the core products we annually provide print design for all the following materials:

  • Posters
  • Fisheyes
  • Printed Stationary
  • Reproduction for foil-backed label print
  • Bag-in-Box Packaging
  • Publication design
