Top League Creative scores after Chu Lo wins award for Design Excellence

Drinks industry newcomer, Chu Lo, has won the award for Design Excellence at the International Drinks Expo (IDE) 2019 in London.

The prestigious award was presented to Chu Lo founder and owner, Stephanie Buttery, who attended the event on Monday (19th November) which coincided with the drink’s official launch.

Things are looking bright for Chu Lo.

Chu Lo is already stocked in dozens of quality establishments across Manchester, from gaming stores to bars and restaurants.

The accolade has generated even more interest in the premium Japanese-inspired soft drink with restaurant chains and gaming stores already in talks to strike a deal to stock the award-winning beverage.

Creative”Market research from Warrington to Watford has been overwhelming positive about the branding and it’s wonderful to have industry professionals speak so highly of the concepts that we’ve developed,” Stephanie told IDE reporters.

“The nomination for Design Excellence was an honour to receive and to have been chosen over the other incredible brands has blown me away.”

The Chu Lo branding and package design was produced by Top League Creative, a young and vibrant design and marketing agency based in Vienna with its roots in Manchester.

“It’s a fantastic achievement for both Top League Creative and Chu Lo, both of which are less than a year old,” said Top League Creative’s Charles Wythe.

“Chu Lo was a joy to work on! 

“Stephanie came to us with a great product and brilliant vision and the branding, design concept and artwork flowed from there.”


In just six months, Chu-Lo went from concept, crafting and canning, to becoming the award-winning and sought-after soft drink in Manchester City – with plans for wider release across the UK.

But you don’t have to wait to get your taste buds tingling with our vegan friendly, gluten free and low sugar soft drink because Chu-Lo is available to order online here, right now!

Well done to Stephanie, whose outstanding product and brilliant vision took Chu-Lo Drinks, in just a matter of months, from start-up concept to winning newcomer.
