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.

In homage to his late father and founder of Inverarity, Ronnie, Hamish Martin, managing director and master blender, has only used whiskies distilled in 1997 for the blend.

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.

Richard Hemming MW: beware inverse snobbery

Few things can bring communal pleasure so intimately as wine. Apart from a hot tub, perhaps.
