Lindores Abbey - Thabill Aqua Vitae
Packaging Design

On 25th and 26th May 2019, Lindores Abbey Distillery hosted the Lindores Abbey Chess Stars Tournament, and brought the game of kings back to the abbey after 500 years. To mark this historically significant event, Lindores Abbey Distillery commissioned Nevis to design the commemorative presentation box and label packaging for a limited edition Aqua Vitae Spirit, Lindores Abbey Thabill.

The name ‘Thabill’ refers to a 1480s inventory of the Abbey which mentioned ‘twa pairs of thabills wt thair men’ – translating into today’s English as ‘two chessboards with their pieces’. Chess has been a part of the Abbey’s history for more than 500 years, and the Spirit packaging design is a fitting tribute to the game of kings.
