Jury Comments

“The Roku Gin pack is what I would call a complete carton. One that is aesthetically appealing on shelf, well-constructed and working with the product, the shape feels good in the hand and the soft touch and graphics, both external and internal, complete the package. However, the detail of adding the product story, on the pack talking about the botanicals as well as a recipe suggestion is all about talking to the consumer, assuring them that they have purchased a premium quality product”
