Christmas gifts for valued clients

I’m afraid to say that it is indeed that time of year again.   It comes around so quickly and we have only just finished celebrating summer!

Corporate branded champagne 2017 PWDSo, what are you going to do for your values clients this year?  Do you give client gifts?  Have you ever received a gift as a client?

Well, let me tell you, there is nothing better than receiving a gift from someone you were not expecting it from.  We are here to make sure that you are remembered and loved for what you have given your client.

Corporate branded wine, personalised with your very own design, is the perfect Christmas client gift.  Firstly, it’s got to be a good wine, you can’t go showing your appreciation with substandard goods.  We offer a range of artisan wines from small organic producers across the world, we are a wine merchant after all!

Next, choose your packaging.  We offer a range of branded and unbranded gift box options from 1 bottle cardboard gift cartons to 6 bottle wooden presentation boxes6 bottle wooden box – check out all of our gift packaging options on the website here>

Send us your logo and choose a wine and we will get to work designing your very own personalised wine label.  Your corporate branded wine will look elegant and the label will compliment the wine choice, both style and colouring of the bottle.  You can see some of our previous work on the website here >

Your customer will be thrilled to bits with the gesture and they will put their branded wine bottle on the rack.  At some point, later in the year, they will sit down to dinner with a group of friends and get the bottle out of the rack.  There it will sit on the table with your brand on show to all.  You will come up in conversation and be remembered for being thoughtful and generous.

So there you are, can you think of any reason why you wouldn’t give your clients a corporate branded wine bottle for Christmas?

A 12 bottle case starts at £15 a bottle, designed, printed and delivered.  Find out more here >

And finally, if you are thinking of any wine gifts this year then don’t look any further, or just a little bit further in Hannibal’s Grotto – award-winning cheeses, world-class wines and lots of gift sets to choose from.

Hickstead – Longines Royal International Horse Show

Team Hannibal Brown packed up our travelling wine stand and headed to Hickstead, Sussex, for the Royal International Horse Show.  Needless to say, it was very, very wet!  We still have some great Personalised Wine orders for winners which we designed on the spot.  A great gift or prize for any event.

We took a great range of wines, which varied from a classic Ribero del Duero through to a Biodynamic Gruner Veltliner from Austria.  The latter being our best seller!

We do love our hardy outdoor customers.  Adorned with sensible boots, good solid waterproof hats and a willingness to enjoy their day whatever the whether, the crowds came to enjoy the show and get stuck into the shopping and food offerings.


Our favourite food stand was undoubtedly The Curry Squad – fantastic Indian Street Food to go!  Their Gluten Free Onion Bhajis went brilliantly with our Villa Wolf Pinot Noir Rosé from Germany – try the combination to believe it!

We’ve included some pictures of our personalised label designs and general scenes from the event.

It’s not just at our outside events that we design fabulous labels, you can order online by clicking here, or you could visit our wine shop to view our full range of wines – it’s free delivery on 12 bottles and no minimum order!  Enjoy!

Personalised wine to say ‘thank you’

Crackit JPD Champagne

A big thank you to Crackit Productions

On so many occasions, we are asked to design wine labels that incorporate the message ‘thank you’.  Two such simple words, yet so powerful.  Recently, Jude (our resident designer) put together a delightful personalised wine label design – it was on behalf of a rather special client for their (equally special) client, on an extremely special case of Champagne.  The beauty of Jude’s designs is that they work with the existing bottle appearance, not against.  By this, I mean that the Champagne bottle carried an ornate golden neck foil.  We ensured that the personalised label complemented the foil to ensure the look and feel naturally sat comfortably.  The outcome was this exquisite piece of design that delighted everyone.

Turnaround time for this order was fast – just 4 days from receipt of order to delivery – which is what our client required.  If you have a client that you wish to thank, then give us a shout on 020 3876 8008 – we’re always happy to put some personalised wine design ideas together for you.
