To celebrate Mensa’s 70th anniversary in 2016, the society has launched two new special commemorative products.

The official Mensa tartan and a limited edition anniversary gin are both available now to mark the platinum anniversary of the world's oldest high IQ society.

Mensa was formed in Oxford on October 1, 1946 and there are now more than 100,000 members around the world, including more than 20,000 across the UK and Ireland.

The Mensa tartan is a unique design and has been registered with the Scottish Register of Tartans.

Woven in high quality fabric and featuring Mensa’s core colours of blue and yellow, the tartan can be made up in a vast array of products, from traditional kilts to cufflinks.

The fabric is woven in Scotland and each item is individually made by Scotweb. Alternatively, you could order a length of fabric to create your own bespoke item of clothing or keepsake.

Following on from the very popular limited edition whisky produced for Mensa’s 60th anniversary, the society has also commissioned a limited edition small batch artisan gin.

The gin, called Spirit of Mensa, is 40% abv and is distilled and bottled in Scotland. It is available direct from WoodWinters in Stirling.
