Mary Celeste White Rum

Mary Celeste Rum is a bottle package design that combines gothic black letter typography with an old, pen & ink illustration style to set a vintage, mysterious tone. The bottle focuses on the theme of the Mary Celeste Ship legend of an 1800s ship that was found adrift and to this day remains mysterious among sea folk. The design captures this "ghost ship" idea in an upscale liquor design complete with a thick, textured paper and corked top.
