Spotlight on our Bespoke Product Service

We are often asked to create bespoke products for customers and we thought we’d share one such project. This particular piece was a branded, wall-mounted gin bar.

In our world we love to create products that enhance the environments in which they’re placed. We know our customers love our authentic rustic homewares and we get lovely feedback about how the pieces we make really make a difference. We’re told that often one item can finish off a room or location perfectly.

However, what if you just can’t find exactly what you’re looking for?

Well, that is where our Bespoke Product Service comes into play.

We were recently asked to create a branded wall-mounted gin bar for a true gin lover who wanted it to match their favourite gin brand. In this case it was the increasingly popular Malfy Gin and here’s how we approached the task…

Design Inspiration

Firstly, we took inspiration from the Malfy Gin branding – utilising their bold brand colours and stylish fresh illustrations to create a scheme that maintained the rustic look and feel we’re famous for.


With a shelf for up to six bottles of their delicious gin, we were asked to create the bar in such a way that it looked like barrels or crates that had been chopped up to create the piece.


As the wood we used was reclaimed from an old warehouse it had seen plenty of action. It was precisely what we wanted and it would deliver exactly the look and feel we wanted.

However, it needed to be sanded, smoothed and prepared ready to add the (pretty cool) Malfy branding onto the wood.

In doing so we ensured that the multiple panel parts that would make up the bar shelving unit would look rustic and well-worn.

This rustic, handmade approach ensured that it not only looked great but also that it matched the stylish kitchen in which it was to be placed.

We then applied the logo across the various parts, added the design of the Amalfi coastline to the rear of the bar and then began building it to the customer’s individual specifications.

Next was the process of hand finishing – we introduced the colour scheme with rustic, worn and weathered paint effects to key points to tie in perfectly with the overall look and feel of the piece.

The final stage involved carefully oiling and adding a delightful dark oak waxing and polishing for extra protection.

” Truly Amazing Service “

Oh My Word! It’s amazing… It’s exactly what we wanted. It’s even better than I could ever have imagined. I now need to go shopping for more gin! I can’t wait to show it off to all my friends and family.

Thank you so, so much for a truly amazing service.
