Mortlach whisky has a new teardrop shaped bottle design

Generations Mortlach by Contagious

 

British creative brand agency Contagious, have worked together with Gordon & MacPhail and highly skilled Scottish craftspeople, to create a limited edition bottle and glasses for Generations Mortlach 75 Years Old whisky.

They started with the elegant teardrop shaped hand-blown crystal decanter, that is the iconic feature of the Generations range. For Mortlach Aged 75 Years by Gordon & MacPhail, the designers introduced 75 ribbon-like channels, hand-cut into the crystal, with each of the 100 decanters also uniquely numbered and sealed with an etched silver band.

Marrying traditional craftsmanship with cutting edge technology, the designers commissioned a seductively tactile plinth, featuring 75 gently undulating ripples across its cool white surface, to hold and display the decanter and two hand-cut crystal glasses – the final shape and contours of those glasses reached through rapid prototyping, using 5 axis CNC routering.

To promote the notion of a whisky that’s meant to be displayed, shared and enjoyed, Contagious nestled the decanter, plinth and glasses – as well as both a silver and a crystal stopper – into a luxurious Aniline leather travel bag, rather than the more traditional presentation box.
