Thanks for the advice matey, copyright barely even crossed my mind!On the logo - it looks very much like this one, well the frame does.
I haven't looked for the bird - but if I did, would I find it on an image stock website?
You really have to be careful with things like this - not that it wasn't done completely by accident - it happens, and it's a basic shape.
But the bird is not a basic shape.
I'd think about the copyright that is already existing for the elements of your logo with the bird. You don't want to end up in a hot mess.

In regards to the layout - it's good.
I'd push Raw to the next line to Raw Honey is on the same line.
I think you're right with trying to fit it into the yorkshire style! The bottles I am using are pretty long hence the length of the label.Wrote this as your post got edited.
I had to Google "Limoncello" as I didn't know what it was.
After that I searched I then Googled "Limoncello label" and they all look very similar with a botanic style illustration of some lemons and leaves.
Edit. Just seen you're label.
I don't see anything much wrong with it as it stands although it does look a little tall for a bottle label but then I don't know what bottle it's going on.
It's understated and reserved but that in itself is a look.
I guess a lot depends on the message you're trying to get across with the branding for your demographic.
Who will buy it?
A common trend is to ge with a very traditional, strong typographical approach and same with any images/illustration.
Victorian etching/engraving style that fit the Yorkshire feel but is that what you're going for?
My friend makes flavoured liqueurs in Derbyshire but his branding isn't Derbyshire focused.
If I were you I'd think either going for a traditional Italian look or the more local craft distillery vibe which is dare I say it....is a bit Hipster.
Don't forget to push the Raw onto the same line so it's Raw Honey all on one lineThanks for the advice matey, copyright barely even crossed my mind!
No offence taken what so ever! I appreciate the advice.Don't forget to push the Raw onto the same line so it's Raw Honey all on one line
Hope the copyright stuff didn't offend, it's just something I do with all logos, see where they came from. Most are stolen logos from other people's work, which is why I do it - or they have taken elements from stock logos and used them, which is an infringement on the T&Cs of most stock image sites.
I thought that was the case with the shape of the bottle so good call there.I think you're right with trying to fit it into the yorkshire style! The bottles I am using are pretty long hence the length of the label.
Do you have any advice as to how to get a botanic style illustration of leaves and lemons? I'm guessing I'd have to approach somebody to design one?
I did a prototype the other afternoon but still feel the yellow is lost within the colour of the spirit. I have thought about using a printing company that can add a gloss to the font to make it shine in the light!I really like the label - maybe it's because I like Gin and and I like lemon!
Can't really go wrong.
Clean readable, easily identifiable, I checked several other gin type labels and lemon type labels and didn't find anything too similar.
Overall, good, clean, professional looking label.
You can always print off the label yourself and cut it out and stick it on the bottle (or similar bottle) to get a sense if it's the right shape etc.
Have you got pics of the bottle?
