The lithographed label was produced by the Schmidt Lithograph Company of Fresno, California. The label has a purple and pink checkered border, a background in a blue and grey tartan pattern, and an inset oval with an image of Loch Lomond inside and a large orange on the lower right. Loch Lomond is the largest lake in Great Britain.
