Powder Monkey

Portfolio Categories: Conventional Print, Label of the Week, and Regional.

In 1824, aged nine, Bleasdale founder Frank Potts joined the British Royal Navy as one of its dutiful powder monkeys, tasked with the dangerous job of carrying gunpowder from the powder magazine in the ships hold to the artillery pieces.


The label recognises young Frank’s seafaring adventure, with a nautical world map the backdrop for brand and vintage detail. Bleasdale Powder Monkey is a single vineyard wine from our very best Shiraz vineyard, located behind the cellars.
