XIII Prohibition Style Whiskey

Product and Packaging Design

Minnesota 13 was the name of an open pollinated corn variety developed by the University of Minnesota. It also became the name of the corn liquor distilled on many farms in Central Minnesota during the prohibition. Federal agents burned barns and sheds to curtail its large scale production. Stored in an oil bottle, XIII is meant to be hidden in plain sight. The label is designed in an art deco style of the time.
