Klin Groupe was named for its birthplace in a Russian town north of Moscow. In 2007, they brought a generations-old recipe of six-times filtered, six-times distilled vodka to the U.S. and called it Hammer + Sickle. Since then, they’ve added luxury wine and cigar brands to create a burgeoning lifestyle brand family, with a nod to Russian roots and an uncompromising take on the good life.
Rounding out the Klin brand family are three distinct wine brands and their associated websites. The sites use a similar layout to each other and to the other Klin brands, but depart radically when it comes to color, styling, content, and imagery. Each is a simple but dramatic representation of the brand it features. It concludes the first wave of an evolving and successful Klin Groupe digital ecosystem.Launch Site
“When we started looking for a firm to design and build our sites, we researched other websites that had the look and feel we were hoping to achieve. We noticed a common thread: they were all designed by FINE. Immediately, we were impressed by the personal attention we got, the counsel we received and the ability the FINE team had to deliver. ”
