The design department at Douglas Laing have been busy once again, this time they have turned their attention to the packaging of the Glasgow based bottler's sister company, Douglas McGibbon & Company's Clan Denny whisky range.

As we have come to know from DL's various whisky ranges their design department are a creative bunch and the new-look packaging for the Clan Denny range is no exception, it now carries two distinct themes; time and origins. This extends to the whimsical, bespoke pack illustration that charters the spirit’s journey from raindrops to the still, to casks and finally, most importantly, to the dram inside.

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 which are bottled at a wide range of ages, and offered without colouring or chill-filtration. Clan Denny also offers a couple of excellent regional Blended Malts, from Speyside and Islay which which are difficult to get hold of these days, I thought perhaps that these had been discontinued, I contacted the company and they have assured me that the Clan Denny Blended Malts are still available but I did notice that they are no longer bottled at 46% ABV these days, they have dropped to 40% for the Islay and 43% for the Speyside, still good value for your money.

The new branding launches in the 70th year of Douglas McGibbon & Co, with 9 Clan Denny Single Malt bottlings (at 48% ABV), and 5 Single Grain bottlings (at 50% ABV), including:

  • Auchentoshan 16 Year Old
  • Glengoyne 20 Year Old
  • Craigellachie 21 Year Old
  • Bowmore 15 Year Old
  • Port Dundas 28 Year Old

Interestingly the Douglas McGibbon & Company was established by Fred Douglas Laing in 1947, one year before he established the sister company Douglas Laing & Co, Douglas McGibbon & Company is now in its third generation, with Fred Hamilton Laing (Fred Jr.) and his daughter, Cara Laing at the helm.

You will find the current Clan Denny whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as Master of Malt
