Distillery director Cameron McCann worked with Captain Simon Talbot and Major David Ronaldson to create a label to compliment all aspects of the gin and army regiment.

Captain Simon Talbot said: "It was important to us during the development of this joint venture that we were able to ensure we had demonstrable local links that also chimed with our identity.

“Working with Stirling gin to develop our Regimental labelled gin has been a great experience from beginning to end.

“Efficient, accommodating and thoroughly professional. Stirling Gin have enabled us to create a uniquely branded bottle which stand the test of time.”  

Cameron McCann, Stirling Gin director, added: “We are delighted to be working with and supporting a branch of the armed forces and looking forward to continuing to support them in the future.”

Captain Talbot and Major Ronaldson stated their interest in featuring the wolf that had been used previously in one of Stirling Gin’s limited-edition products.

The Captain had spotted this design as he is one of the Distillery’s join the journey private members and was keen to put a different twist on the wolf for their gin.  

Forth Valley college’s Estelle Reding, who is an Erasmus student from Luxembourg, created the new label.
