Drayson Jago was founded by Emily Jago in 2020. Emily has an extensive knowledge of wine having working previously as a Sommelier and completed her wine Diploma. She now works in the wine trade, selling to premium London restaurants. In her free time she paints, mostly using watercolour and ink.
The twelve red wines design was originally created as a Christmas card, playing on the concept of palette vs palate, but has proved enduringly popular with red lovers year-round. The decanter design quickly followed, inspired by her parents’ eclectic collection, and then the corkscrew design – each with a playful twist on the collection of objects.
The cards are printed on specialist Munken paper, designed to mimic the natural grain of the watercolour paper of the original paintings. The envelopes are brown recycled Kraft paper.
