Gins With Loads of Character

We were honoured to be contacted by Driftwood Gin Distillery in the Netherlands, to help market their craft gins. Driftwood Distillery currently offer four beautifully packaged craft gins which are available worldwide. 

The Problem

Driftwood’s current website had been created a good while earlier and managed by the owners. As with many websites, the process of managing it versus just doing what you are great at (in this case, distilling gin) became harder and harder. Driftwood also wanted the ability to sell their gins online, using the various payment methods available in NL. This included split payments, which are a legal requirement. 

Our Solution

The Driftwood Distillery website uses the WordPress CMS and WooCommerce. The design is clean and minimal and makes use of the product photography and illustrative style of the product. 

The website is built using CSS Grid to create a modern, adaptive layout that re-orders itself depending on the device size. CSS Grid allows for much more flexible layouts and faster site speed. 

We worked with amazing photographer Matt Wilkinson. Matt produced the gorgeous cocktail and product shots that help to make the website so clean and minimal looking. They leave the attention entirely on the imagery and the colours of the brand. We believe that websites should be fast, clean and minimal, making use of the content within rather than relying on lots of pomp and flashy effects. This has been accomplished beautifully in this project.

The site & photography was completed in time for the bottles to feature in GQ Magazine

Matt created seasonal cocktails for the website product shots, for the perfect serves

What Our Client Said

Working with Andi to develop my website has been an absolute pleasure. What I appreciated was the time that she took to listen to my dreams and then suggest something that was practical and suited my needs and my budget. She built a website that can evolve over time, is professional, speedy and easy to navigate around.

That’s why I continue to want to work with Andi and the Made by Factory team. Together they make my business better.
