Irn Bru has released limited edition bottles with 57 different Scottish tartans on them! Obviously their version of the names on Coke bottles. 2ltr and 500ml bottles see link in comment 9 below thanks to Fanpages.

Are going to be putting a 'Clan Finder' on their site soon which is where the link above takes you. Only available until March.

Deal wise they (the 2ltr bottles) are on 3 for £3 in Asda, or 2 for £2 in Morrisons

Looked on "Clan Finder" but could not find tartans for close friends Ben Doon and Phil McCavity.

The guys from Girders are geniuses at marketing. X)

It's not petty at all.

Have you tried?...

Irn Bru + Captain Morgan's Spiced (Cassia & Vanilla) = "Scotch Pist(tm)".

Banned

How is this a deal? and Hot?

Irn Bru is always a £1 in most shops, cheaper in Home bargains, 99p store and B&M

I'm a little confused here, are people really going to save the bottles?

What do people buy this stuff for because surely its not for drinking. Still not as bad as Vimto though.

Ok for a start, irn Bru is one of the best soft drinks ever! But everyone has different tatse. However I posted not so much for the 'deal' but because its limited edition, I would love to find my tartan on a bottle, just hope its there! Waiting for the clan finder to go live then hopefully the hunt is on!

I know that Phil McCrackin bloke, and he's not a dentist, he's a proctologist

shame its Scotland only. would love to have a bottle with my clan on.

The best hangover cure in the world!....made in Scotland from girders.....so it is!

I was expecting the liquid to be tartan more like this:

http://www.letsbuyscottish.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/scotclans-tartan-paint1.jpg

Didn't this stuff used to be called iron brew "made from gerders" and taste a little bit like butterscotch/cream soda. I never liked it or Coke/Pepsi but each to thier own maybe a good deal for some.

OK I am now informed
Irn-Bru is known for its bright orange colour. As of 1999 it contained 0.002% of ammonium ferric citrate, sugar, 32 flavouring agents including caffeine and quinine (but not in Australia), and two controversial colourings (Sunset Yellow FCF and Ponceau 4R). On 27 January 2010, A.G. Barr agreed to a Food Standards Agency voluntary ban on these two colourings although no date has been set for their replacement.[3]

Irn-Bru was first produced in 1901, in the town of Falkirk, under the name Iron Brew.[4] In 1946, a change in laws required that the word brew be removed from the name, as the drink is not brewed. The chairman of the company came up with the idea of changing the spelling of both halves of the name, giving the Irn-Bru brand. 1980 saw the introduction of Low Calorie Irn-Bru: this was re-launched in 1991 as Diet Irn-Bru and again in 2011 as Irn-Bru Sugar Free. The Irn-Bru 32 energy drink variant was launched in 2006.

It has long been the most popular soft drink in Scotland, with Coca-Cola second, but recent competition between the two brands has brought their sales to roughly equal levels.[5] It is also the third best selling soft drink in the UK[citation needed], after Coca-Cola and Pepsi, outselling high-profile brands such as Fanta, Dr Pepper, Sprite and 7-Up. This success in defending its home market (a feat claimed only by Irn-Bru, Thums Up and Inca Kola) led to ongoing speculation that Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Inc. or its UK brand franchisee Britvic would attempt to buy A.G. Barr. In November 2012 AG Barr and Britvic announced a merger proposal,[6] in July 2013 the merger collapsed when terms could not be agreed.[7]

Irn-Bru's advertising slogans used to be 'Scotland's other National Drink', referring to whisky, and 'Made in Scotland from girders', a reference to the rusty colour of the drink; though the closest one can come to substantiating this claim is the 0.002% ammonium ferric citrate listed in the ingredients.

A limited edition Irn-Bru was released in Autumn 2011. Packaged with a black and orange design, and with the signature man icon with an added image of a fire, Fiery Irn-Bru, had a warm, tingly feeling in the mouth once drunk. The after taste to it is similar to ginger but still has the Irn-Bru flavour.

Irn-Bru is also sold in reusable 750 ml glass bottles which, like other Barr's drinks, may be returned to the manufacturer in exchange for the 30 pence deposit paid. This scheme is widely available in shops across Scotland.

+1 for the hangover cure.

Clan finder, McJesus wept....
If you have to use a clan finder to find your kilt, here's a clue:

YOU'RE NOT SCOTTISH AND NOT IN A CLAN !!!

I would be gutted if they sold out to the devil....Coca Cola

Haha, I know my clan, also know both its tartans, it's to find out if it's actually one of the ones that Bru have on the bottles, better be!

Sigh, family tartans were an invention of the victorian english to make some cash out of tourism.

The lovely scots will love this!
