Rich heritage from Plymouth Gin

May 14, 2012

 Chivas Brothers, the Scotch whisky and premium gin business of Pernod Ricard, is introducing a new look for Plymouth Gin. The new packaging reached retailgin shelves in the United States in March. The new rounded bottle shape and antique style pay tribute to the heritage of Plymouth Gin, while the oval label reflects an earlier version of the packaging, and is enriched with copper to reflect Plymouth’s artisanal credentials, the company says. An image of the Mayflower Ship on the label and a Black Friar Monks icon are embossed into the flint glass in reference to the distillery, which was originally a monastery for the Black Friar Monks and the location where the Pilgrim Fathers stayed the night before they set sail on the Mayflower in 1620.
