August Brand News: Whisky
Douglas McGibbon Rebrand
Douglas McGibbon & Co has rebranded its Clan Denny Single Malt and Single Grain Scotch Whisky range. The new-look packaging for Clan Denny now carries two distinct themes; time
and origins. Fred Laing, the firm’s Managing Director and second generation in the Douglas McGibbon family business, says, “We believe Whiskies and people are similar in many ways, and that both time and our surroundings have a huge impact on character. This is a fascinating theme explored in our Clan Denny Single Cask collection, encouraging consumers to reflect on the journey their Scotch Whisky has travelled, and the people who have influenced its character along the way.”
Douglas McGibbon’s Clan Denny range is home to Single Cask Single Malt and Single Grain Scotch Whiskies from a variety of Distilleries across Scotland. Bottled at a wide range of ages, and without colouring or chill-filtration, these Scotch Whiskies present the finest expressions from the Douglas McGibbon family reserves. The new branding launches in the 70th year of Douglas McGibbon & Co.

Tomatin has revealed its limited edition single malt from its Warehouse 6 Collection, the 1972 edition. The distillery has now released the 1972 Warehouse 6 Collection to the market, following the launch of the 1971 edition last year
