The Edrington Group has unveiled a new look for its Highland Park single malt.

The brand redesign was unveiled yesterday (6 November) at WhiskyFest New York, and is launched in the US this month. The revamp applies not only to the bottle and pack, but also to the brand logo and website.

The redesign encompasses the complete Highland Park range, including the 15- and 30-year-old expressions released in the last 18 months.

"Highland Park is arguably the most respected single malt in the world and has earned the respect of whisky critics worldwide," said Steve Cruty, Highland Park US brand manager, Rémy Cointreau USA. "We expect industry experts, our loyal customers and new friends to take as much of a liking to the new distinctive brand imagery, packaging and bottle design as they have to the liquid inside."

The redesign is part of a larger initiative by the Edrington Group, which has invested GBP18m (US$33m) in a global plan to double annual sales over the next five years and to become one of the world's top 10 malts.
