Glen Scotia unveils 30 year old with collection of packaging designs

Glen Scotia has unveiled a new 30 year old single malt, released as part of its new Spirit Safe collection with the distillery’s artist-in-residence, Alice Angus.

The collection continues the partnership with the Scottish artist who spent time in Campbeltown sketching and painting the distillery ad its surrounding environment before producing artwork.

The four works will be presented on a limited run of 120 premium display boxes and bottle labels, giving consumers a chance to own a piece of the collaboration along with rare Glen Scotia single malt whisky.

Each packaging design pays homage to Glen Scotia’s history, with each of the following represented in the designs:

·      First Water

·      Heart of the Run

·      Labour of Years

·      Time and Tide

The whisky liquid itself has been matured in European oak casks, initially laid down in 1989. 

Commenting on the artwork, Angus said: "My Spirit Safe series is inspired by the generations of dedicated people, the Campbeltown community, the unique landscape, the ingredients, skills, engineering, and care that goes into making Glen Scotia; and all rhythms of time across hours, years, and decades involved in its creation. 

“What started as a one-off residency has grown into a longer-term partnership of new projects and exciting collaborations. Glen Scotia is a mesmerising place, and I am so grateful to the team for always making me welcome, supporting my work and sharing their stories and knowledge. This collection is a homage to them and all that came before, and I am already looking forward to seeing where else our partnership together might go.”
