Walled City Brewery

In 2015, James Huey launched the first craft brewery in Ireland’s Maiden City, Derry-Londonderry for more than 100 years. James discovered a beer recipe from the time of The Siege and as such required support labelling to launch the brand in Ireland. Read on to learn how we ‘hopped’ to it for a brand launch.

Located in the historic Ebrington Square, Walled City Brewery operates as both a brewery and restaurant. The new premium product required packaging that reflected that whilst incorporating the history and heritage that was integral to the brand. Furthermore, the packaging needed to be produced to a tight deadline in line with the brand launch.

Our solution was to deliver premium uncoated labels with quality embossing and hot foiling. We felt this was the most appropriate look and feel for the new brand. We created the labels in a tight turnaround time and contributed to a successful all-island launch and now work with the team at Walled City Brewery on an ongoing basis. Nuprint printed all the labels for the new on-site taphouse and the company’s first spirit, ‘Earhart Gin’ – which references American Aviator Emelia Earhart who landed into the Gallagher family’s field in Ballyarnett, Derry after bad weather conditions altered her course during her infamous first female solo trip across the Atlantic.

We look forward to continuing to raise the bar in creating and developing new labels for Walled City Brewery – Sláinte!

Having worked with large labelling companies in my previous job at a multinational, it was totally refreshing to work with Nuprint. From initial design conversations to delivery of the final product, my experience with Nuprint was world-class with a personal touch.
