Making a Mountain Out of A Tin

Isle of Arran Distillers has launched its latest series of limited-edition whiskies, with its metal packaging celebrating the unique beauty of the landscape on the Scottish island. Produced by IPL Packaging, the first of The Explorers Series pays homage to Brodick Bay, found on the east coast of the Isle of Arran.

The natural metallic tin features embossed and screen-printed branding and, echoing the labelling on the bottle itself, depicts the glorious scenery of Brodick Bay in the muted style of a painted landscape. Containing a removable EVA bottle fitment, the tin was manufactured with secondary use as a consideration.

Speaking about The Explorers Series, Euan Mitchell, MD of Isle of Arran Distillers, was quoted as saying, “Seeing the natural beauty of this island every day is so inspiring. It felt like the obvious choice to pay homage to the picturesque scenery through our new limited-edition series.”

Located 12 miles from the Isle of Arran’s Lochranza distillery, Brodick Bay is backed by dense woodlands of Scots pine and is guarded by the islands highest peak, Goat Fell. The bay is surrounded by unique terrain, ranging from a sandy beach to a verdant field, lush forests and rocky mountain passes.

Once buzzing with over 50 whisky distilleries, the island of Arran is now currently home to just this one, which claims its water, sourced from Loch Na Davie, is the purest in Scotland! Today, in excess of 60,000 people visit the award-winning distillery every year.
