Labels for home-made ginger beer?

Have you ever thought of using linocut to create product labels? It had been on my mind for a while. I had home-made ginger beer in the fridge, in plain wine bottles, so I decided to have a go!

All just for fun, using 1 plate - and 2 ink colours, I decided on the name 'Murphy's Ginger Boom' - and here are my labels.

Yes, the fresh, live, natural, fermented product lived up to its name - and the label claims - and proved fairly explosive on occasions over the summer. Delicious and refreshing too. If you haven't tried it, I'd whole-heartedly recommend making your own old-fashioned fermented ginger beer - and the labels!

Safest to open outdoors... delicious
