The Nolet family has been producing fine gins for over 300 years; now, MW have been welcomed into the fold to manufacture a one-of-a-kind case for their Dry Gin Reserve, of which only 500 bottles are produced every year.
Formed from an octagonal MDF sub-structure, this wooden case is multi-coated in a satin gold paint finish, and emblazoned with hand-applied detailing and a gel badge bearing the Nolet crest. To the side, a gold push button enables easy opening; one light press and the case swings open fluidly on its polished hinges. Silky and elegant, it’s an exterior that suggests just the right amount of decadence.
Inside, the Nolet bottle rests on a removable, velvet-bottomed plinth, held firmly in place by a hinged and magnetised collar. Slip the bottle out, and you can rest it outside the case on its own, or within its plinth, which is fronted with a gold plaque.
A softly-grained cream PU leather lining offsets the striking gold exterior, and a shallow recess in the door holds two unique extras. The first is a full-colour booklet printed with spot gloss UV varnish and foil branding, which details the history of this extraordinary drink; the second, a certificate signed by Carolus H.J. Nolet himself.
