“Our brief was to develop a new identity worthy of the brand; which is served in some of the best restaurants and hotels across the UK and overseas.

“We wanted to communicate how stylish and refreshing Gleneagles Natural Mineral Water is and our inspiration was the quality of the brand itself, which we have reflected in the stylised lettering that appears in liquid form.”

Richard Beeston, marketing director - development of Highland Spring Ltd, said: “In re-branding Gleneagles our objective was to enhance its premium, sophisticated image and reflect the superior quality of the pure Scottish water and the iconic award winning glass bottle.

The Gleneagles brand is recognised as one of the most stylish bottled waters available for fine dining and we are very pleased with the new creative execution which has been extremely well received by customers and the trade alike”.
