Scottish winery Cairn O’Mohr toasts 30 years
Scottish berry fruit winery, Cairn O’Mohr, based in rural Perthshire, has unveiled a brand new look to celebrate its upcoming 30 years in business.
The Errol-based business run by Ron and Judith Gillies has been making berry wines since 1987 using fruit sourced within a 25-mile radius of the winery.
The couple started the winery with just a few tools and a ‘teach yourself wine making’ manual. Today, the brand now boasts a shop, café and bottling line providing 15 jobs for the local community.
To celebrate the upcoming milestone, the brand has undergone a refresh with new bottle labels for the core range of wines. Evolving their iconic Celtic designs, the new labels include an updated graphic of the familiar Cairn O’Mohr peacock.
The new labels, along with some creative tasting notes penned by Ron, will appear on Cairn O’Mohr’s Strawberry, Raspberry, Bramble, Elderberry, Spring Oak Leaf, Autumn Oak Leaf and Gooseberry & Elderflower wines
Ron and Judith owners said, “We can’t believe we have made it to such a significant milestone. From humble beginnings making a few bottles of wine a year, we have turned our home wine making into a flourishing business.
“As our processes and orders have grown bigger so has our winery in Errol. Now we have a shop, café, run tours for visitors and supply trade and retail customers across the UK.”
They added, “Being a part of the local community and using local produce is very important to us. Every part of the wine making process happens on site, from making the wine to bottling and distributing.
“In celebration of our 30thanniversary, we commissioned new labels and logos to be designed. We felt it was the right time to give the bottles a new makeover. We are excited to see the new bottles hit the shelves over the next couple of weeks.”
