CF Napa Brand Design Creates Bespoke Tribute to Michigan Wilderness for Fox & Oden

Holland, Michigan craft distillery Fox & Oden came to CF Napa Brand Design with the task of creating the custom bottle and spirits packaging for their new super-premium North American whiskey. The name “Fox & Oden” was inspired by Michigan’s notoriously cunning red foxes, and the island of Oden, a majestic retreat off the Up North portion of the state. The packaging needed to embody the rugged beauty of northern Michigan while maintaining a sense of luxury.

“Produced in small batches. Fox & Oden™ is a tribute to the rugged bounty and natural beauty of our Michigan home. Every full-bodied sip delivers an expression of the independent spirit and integrity of the trailblazers who came before us.”

CF Napa Brand Design designed a custom bottle reminiscent of vintage whiskey decanters. The wordmark’s hand drawn type gave the whiskey a bespoke sensibility and the delicate gold foil accents reinforced the whiskey’s premium positioning. CF Napa Brand Design commissioned an illustrator to capture our vision of the namesake fox emerging through the tall pines. A dark wood closure and top strip label provided the final touches to this new craft American whiskey.

“A blend of 8- to 15-year-old bourbons using 21% and 36% rye mashbills. On the nose, butterscotch, fig, and nutmeg. On the palate, initial smooth salted caramel transitions into smoky charred oak, leather, and warm baking spices, accented with a hint of tobacco.”
