Twin Liquors is an Austin-based liquor store founded by the Jabour family in the early 1900s. Originating as a package store and growing into a staple liquor store chain, Twin Liquors has dominated the central Texas alcohol industry longer than any one of their competitors. Their industry knowledge of fine wine and spirits predates and outlives Prohibition. The family prides themselves on serving the best to their community, putting passion at the center of their business.
Twin Liquors originally struggled to define their target audience, scattering themselves across the market with no true direction. Lacking both a theme and a brand voice, they are indistinguishable from their competitors. Though they promote their family history as a selling point, it is nowhere to be found throughout the brand.
Unique selling point
Twin Liquors provides time-honored expertise to Texans seeking premium wine, spirits, and beer.
By capitalizing on Twin Liquors’ local origins, and Texas Prohibition-era history, and giving their brand a modern twist, we hope to draw attention from younger audiences while still maintaining the attention of middle-aged crowds that expect unwavering quality in products and experiences.
We gave the brand a new look that both ties them to their Texas history and keeps them relevant in the modern world. We also created a mobile app to better organize the customer’s experience with the brand and exhibit the honored knowledge rooted in the business.
The Twin Liquors rebrand was inspired by vintage western typography, Prohibition-era terminology and iconography.
