The Edrington Group has lined up a gift-pack offering of its The Famous Grouse Scotch whisky brand for Hogmanay.

Maxxium UK, Edrington's joint distribution, marketing and sales venture with Beam Global Spirits & Wine, said yesterday that a limited edition 70cl gift carton will be available only in Scotland from 27 December to celebrate Hogmanay. 'The Famous First Foot' will be available exclusively through 57 Wm Morrison stores in Scotland and features a creative taken from the latest TV advert which is appearing over the Christmas period.

"This is the first time that we have created a gift pack designed specifically for Hogmanay," said Linda Sooprayen, The Famous Grouse's brand manager at Maxxium UK. "By using an on-pack creative that links directly with our new Christmas TV advert this will ... amplify the advert in store and drive sales."

The limited edition will only be available while stocks last, although the company was unable to specify how many packs will be produced.

Hogmanay is the term Scots use for New Year's Eve.
