SMOKEHEAD's Innovative Packaging Takes Gold

Edinburgh, 11 January 2007 SMOKEHEAD, the new Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky launched last year by Ian Macleod Distillers, has won a Gold Medal in its debut at the Wine & Spirit Design Awards 2007.

Competing in the Spirit category, Smokehead was awarded a Gold Medal in recognition of its "stand-out' contemporary designer packaging which creates both "wow' factor and brand value.



Designed by London-based agency Navyblue, the strong upbeat design and packaging of Smokehead appeals directly to the "modern drinker' as well as reflecting the explosive and powerful flavours of this heavily peated, high quality Islay Single Malt.

Iain Weir, Marketing Director for Ian Macleod Distiller's, commented: "The response to Smokehead since its launch has been outstanding. We are delighted that the strong innovative branding and design of Smokehead has been officially recognised by this award. "

Following last month's announcement of Smokehead as a Gold Medal winner in the Spirit category of the W&SDA, Smokehead has now won the overall Design of the Year trophy.

Chosen by a prestigious judging panel of top journalists, design professionals and buyers from both retail and on-trade, Smokehead fought off the strongest competition ever from other Gold Medal winners such as WM Grant & Sons Monkey Shoulder and Diageo's J&B -6C. Smokehead was judged to have the best overall "stand-out' impact and clearest fulfilment of the design brief.
