Allied Supports launch of Unique Raasay

Allied Glass is justly proud of the many brands we supply and of the numerous unique partnerships we have created, which have given us the opportunity to craft some of the glass industry's most beautiful yet innovative packaging.

Take for example the stunning new bottle created to support the launch of R&B Distillers Raasay While We Wait Scotch whisky.

Raasay While We Wait, as its name suggests, is a taster to pass the time in anticipation of a similar single malt distilled at R&B's own production facility on the Isle of Raasay, which it is planned will begin operation in 2017 and to bottle from 2020. Zoë White, Marketing Executive at R&B Distillers, says:

"We've represented our wait very clearly in the design with the face of the clock. Whisky takes time, a minimum of 3 years, and that's just for maturation. In our case, the conversion and extension at Borodale House also has to occur before we can have our own. The Raasay clock marks the time."

An elegant round bottle, which uses delicate embossing to complement the intricate screen printing which was applied at Allied's dedicated Decorating Centre, the container is a reflection of the dedication which has been afforded to creating this stand- alone whisky of the most exceptional quality.
