Artist makes mark on Inverarity label

08 January, 2010

Scottish artist and author Alasdair Gray has designed the artwork for a new, limited-edition blended whisky from Inverarity Vaults.

The label depicts a Disney-esque illustration of the view over Tinto Hill as seen from Inverarity’s head offices in Symington, Lanarkshire.

The whisky is made up of 50% Highland malt and 50% grain whiskies sourced from nine different distilleries and matured in ex-Bourbon casks.

Only 3,000 bottles of the Inverarity Limited Edition Blended Scotch Whisky (rrp £29.99) will be available through Inverarity’s retail arm, One to One, with shops in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
