Mediterranean Classic drink since 1952, Kinnie has just earned a spot on a stamp set which was recently issued by Maltapost earlier this September.
Forming part of SEPAC (Small European Postal Administration Cooperation), Maltapost kept with its annual tradition of a joint stamp issue and this time highlight local beverages.
One of the stamps features a retro Kinnie bottle taking centre stage against a flatly rendered, yet colourful, local backdrop. The stamp set was designed by Daniel Spiteri.
Ms Mary Grace Simpson, Head Philately at Maltapost said, “As soon as the SEPAC stamp theme Local Beverages was chosen, we immediately envisaged depicting a retro Kinnie bottle since it is one of the most popular beverages on the Maltese Island.”
“We are honoured that Kinnie has been represented on a stamp set issue, more so in the year that Kinnie is celebrating 70 years since its launch,” commented Mr Karl Bondin, Marketing Manager at Simonds Farsons Cisk plc.
