The bottle represents five of Linlithgow's most popular landmarks through its shape, design and colour
Linlithgow Distillery has unveiled a stunning bespoke bottle featuring elements that depict the town’s most iconic landmarks, as the West Lothian distillery looks to diversify into the whisky industry.
Created by Italian glass experts Vetroelite, the unique design of the LinGin bottle uses a striking jade colour and signifies a step change for Linlithgow Distillery, replacing the original bottle which launched back in 2018
Ross Jamieson, director and co-founder of Linlithgow Distillery, who designed the initial concept for the new bottle said: “We have always strived to use our town’s rich history and iconic buildings throughout our branding. When we launched three years ago we were very fortunate to source a stock bottle for our gin brand, with a shape that reflected Linlithgow Palace and St Michael’s Church spire – both of which are synonymous with Linlithgow.
“However, we have ambitious growth objectives and to realise these and integrate our future plans for distilling whisky, we wanted to create our own bottle.
“Initially I came up with a few sketches of ideas and we passed these over to our glass partners at Vetroelite. Their design team helped us to refine these, resulting in a bottle we are extremely proud of that introduces foil lettering on an offset label to create a contemporary bottle that truly reflects the quality of our gin.
“Featuring elements of five of Linlithgow’s most renowned landmarks and with our distillery name embossed into the shoulder of the bottle and our logo on the base, this bottle truly belongs to Linlithgow, especially as the skyline image has been taken from a photograph belonging to Linlithgow local, Martin Brown.”
Each of the five landmarks is represented by a different aspect of the bottle. Linlithgow Palace and St Michael's spire are both referenced by the shape of the bottle with an impression of the Crown of Thorns spire being seen when viewing the bottle from the top down.

Finally, Linlithgow Loch is represented by the jade green colour of the bottle, which has been used throughout the distillery’s branding since it first launched.
LinGin Dry Gin is now available in its latest bottle online via the Linlithgow Distillery Website as well as retailers. LinGin Navy Strength and Cask Aged will also become available in the coming months.
