Rural Perthshire based Cairn O’Mohr, which is run by Ron and Judith Gillies, has been making berry wines since 1987.

Ron and Judith started Cairn O’Mohr, Scotland’s oldest and largest winery, with just a few tools, a ‘teach yourself wine making’ manual and local produce sourced within a 25-mile radius of the winery.

The brand now boasts a shop, café and bottling line providing 15 jobs for the local community.

In celebration of their 30 years in business and growth into supermarkets UK-wide, the brand has undergone a refresh with new bottle labels of the core range of wines.

Evolving their iconic Celtic designs, the new labels include an updated graphic of the familiar Cairn O'Mohr peacock. Owner Ron Gillies has added his own insightful and playful tasting notes on each bottle.

The new labels can be seen on their Strawberry, Raspberry, Bramble, Elderberry, Spring Oak Leaf, Autumn Oak Leaf and Gooseberry & Elderflower wines.

Owners, Ron and Judith Gillies said: “We can’t believe we have made it to such a significant milestone. From humble beginnings making a few bottles of wine a year, we have turned our home wine making into a flourishing business.

"As our processes and orders have grown bigger so has our winery in Errol. Now we have a shop, café, run tours for visitors and supply trade and retail customers across the UK.

"Being a part of the local community and using local produce is very important to us. Every part of the wine making process happens on site, from making the wine to bottling and distributing.

"In celebration of our 30thanniversary, we commissioned new labels and logos to be designed. We felt it was the right time to give the bottles a new makeover. We are excited to see the new bottles hit the shelves over the next couple of weeks.”
