Royal Lochnagar

HRH THE PRINCE CHARLES DUKE OF ROTHESAY

Design of bottle, presentation case and cask end for The Cask of His Royal Highness The Prince Charles Duke of Rothesay.

As a gift for Prince Charles on his 40th birthday, Royal Lochnagar laid down a cask of new make whisky. In celebration of his 70th birthday thirty years later, they have tipped the cask and bottled the whisky; two hundred bottles that the Prince has released for sale by ballot in aid of his charities. All bottles are engraved and numbered, and feature the Prince’s crest redrafted by the seminal Gerry Barney (he designed the British Rail logo, and the typeface VAG Rounded among many other things). A great project to work on, for a good cause.
