National Museums Scotland

The Glenmorangie Company and National Museums Scotland won the Cultural Branding Award on 22nd September 2010 for their work on furthering the understanding of Early Historic people of Scotland.

The partnership supports the study and understanding of the period between 300-900AD which is known as Early Historic Scotland. An important aspect of the partnership involves working with contemporary craftspeople to make versions of objects from the Early Historic period that provide significant insights into the skills, techniques and sophistication of society at that time.

Earlier this year two leather book satchels that would have been used by monks bringing Christianity to Scotland were commissioned through the partnership and last year a Pictish throne was specially made and is currently on exhibition touring Scotland.

The Glenmorangie Company has a natural association with National Museums Scotland as the museums’ collections include the eighth-century Hilton of Cadboll Pictish Stone, which was discovered near Glenmorangie House in Ross-shire and is the inspiration for the icon that adorns Glenmorangie's bottles.
