The BenRiach

Located in the ‘Heart of Speyside’, in the North-East region of Morayshire, BenRiach displays all the traditional charm of a Speyside distillery. Built by John Duff in 1898, BenRiach draws its water from the Burnside springs located underground, deep below the distillery.

The BenRiach Distillery Company was named Global Whisky Distiller of the Year at the 2015 Icons of Whisky Awards. A fantastic achievement for a small privately-owned independent company to win this prestigious global award.

This is a the tube packaging for their Single Malt, Batch 1. The tube takes a 70cl bottle of Scotch Whisky and is 292mm tall. The tube outer is printed on our Flora, Avorio 130gsm. It is printed in three special colours, offset litho and hot foil blocked using two color foils, metallic red and antique gold.

If you aren't familiar with Flora, it is produced with 30% post consumer de-inked waste, together with 60% of virgin FSC pulp and with the "secret" ingredient of 10% of cotton fibres, which gives the paper a wonderful tactile feel. It has a deliberately recycled look and feel with specks and inclusions, so it looks deliberately flecky and specky, as you can see from the detail below:

Printing and production is by Gavin Watson Printers. Based in a purpose built factory in Glasgow, they have a formidable reputation for wet glue label printing for the packaging industry as well as commercial printing and finished packaging items (such as this example) for the drinks industry.
