We are delighted to unveil the look of the century for the Distillery of the Year.
Striking new bottle and packaging designs build on a fantastic year for Glen Scotia. Our 25-year-old was awarded ‘Best in Class’ at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2021. On top of this, late last year we were crowned Scottish Distillery of the Year at the Scottish Whisky Awards. It is the first time any distillery has won both of these awards, let alone in the same year.
In celebration, our full core range packaging has been redesigned and we are also introducing a new bottle design. Bold gold, deep aqua and emerald green represent Campbeltown’s seafaring roots and leafy coastlines; paying tribute to our history in the town once known as the ‘Victorian whisky capital of the world’.
Each Glen Scotia expression will be wrapped in luxury labelling detailing icons of heritage, master distiller notes, and that expression’s unique place in our prized portfolio.
Colin Matthews, CEO of The Loch Lomond Group, our parent company, said:“Glen Scotia has forever held a special place in Scotland’s west coast, but in recent years, thanks to the commitment of our team and significant investment in our distillery, the brand has grown exponentially.
“The Glen Scotia distillery is at the forefront of Campbeltown’s renaissance – showcasing the town’s rich whisky heritage, guiding the way for others to follow, and now putting the town and Glen Scotia back to the very centre of attention on the world’s whisky map. It has been made possible by our team’s knowledge, dedication, craftsmanship and determination, and we are very excited to take this stunning new packaging to the world.
“We are the only distillery in the world to have achieved both the highest accolade at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and be crowned Scottish Distillery of the Year, an incredibly proud achievement for us all and even more special that it was all accomplished within the same 12 months. It is a feat only possible for the very best, but we continue to show our enthusiasm and ambition for Glen Scotia and Campbeltown to grow further with the release of this beautiful new packaging.
“We continue to be determined to share Glen Scotia’s thought-provoking heritage and mark its place as one of Scotland’s most impressive and creative whisky distilleries. The whisky industry can be a crowded place, but we are confident this latest move to further enhance the brand will positively spotlight Glen Scotia Whisky for years to come.”
The new designs are rolling out now to reach whisky lovers across the world. Not all of your favourite Glen Scotia Whiskies will feature on our website from today, but rest assured, whatever expression you're looking to purchase will be the same great quality. Shop the range here
