Package redesign for The Six Isles

23rd September 2010

The Six Isles premium Blended Malt Scotch Whisky from independent bottler and distiller, Ian Macleod Distillers, has undergone a redesign bringing the packaging in line with the award winning quality of the whisky inside.

The bespoke elegant tapered antique bottle shape is mirrored by the new split label design. The two-part label includes gold embossing and depictions of the six islands which all uniquely contribute whisky to this full-bodied Blended Malt - Islay, Jura, Skye, Mull, Orkney and Arran. The sleek black tin creates greater shelf presence, offering a standout effect among other blended Malts.

Iain Weir, Marketing Director for Ian Macleod Distillers commented: "The update of the packaging makes it representative of the exceptional and unique quality of The Six Isles and adds great value to its presentation. The new packaging emphasises the premium positioning of the whisky and showcases the brand to its best."

Established in 1933, Ian Macleod Distillers is one of the largest and most widely respected independent family companies within the spirits industry. The award winning Ian Macleod portfolio, which includes Glengoyne, King Robert II, Langs, The Six Isles and Smokehead, as well as gin, rum, and vodka, currently has combined total sales of more than one million cases, with 85% being exported to over 65 markets worldwide.
