Kinnie featured in Maltapost stamp issue

Kinnie, the Mediterranean Classic since 1952, has been featured on a stamp set issued by Maltapost earlier this month.

As a member of SEPAC (Small European Postal Administration Cooperation) and in keeping with its annual tradition of a joint stamp issue, MaltaPost issued a set of four stamps titled 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.

The set is available from all Post Offices in Malta and Gozo. Orders may also be placed online at www.maltaphilately.com
