An old friend of mine came to me with a challenge: he wanted to know if the fictitious brand of scotch, Glengoolie, from the hit animated show “Archer”, could be made into a real-world label. I accepted the challenge.
I borrowed heavily from the Glenfidditch brand, of course, which is (most likely) the brand that Glengoolie is based upon in the show. I designed the label, and my friend had them printed up on sticky labels and affixed to several empty scotch bottles. The end result was so perfect, he sent one to the producers of “Archer”. They responded by sending back a very nice “thank you” letter, and a photo of our bottle on a shelf next to all the Emmy awards the show has won over the years!
