The back of the label reads as follows:
This whisky represents the strength of the South of Scotland, where once Clans such as the Elliots, Maxwells and Armstrongs wreaked havoc in the borderlands. The name is derived from the motto of Clan Armstrong, “Invictus Maneo”, meaning:
“I Remain Unvanquished”
