The idea for 'The Distillers Art' was developed, as all great ideas are, over several pints in a small pub. Founders George and Ewan had been contemplating a dive into the world of independent bottling, and through their chat developed an idea around the connection of whisky to the provenance of the distillery home and location. They realised art is a brilliant way to bridge the emotional connection between the liquid in the bottle and the landscape and place it was made.
Each release of 'The Distillers Art' whisky includes a limited edition print of the artwork inspiring the label. Each print is individually signed by the artist, and the number of prints produced is limited to the number of bottles filled.
For this single cask bottling of 13 year old Ancnoc, the artist, Stuart Buchanan has created a piece titiled “Autumn morning Knockdhu” that shows the distillery in all it’s Autumnal coloured finery.
As for the whisky itself, the official notes read, “Nose: Floral grassiness with hints of honey in the background. Palate: Spicy fruit cake mix fruitiness rounding off with cinnamon and vanilla Finish: A wonderful long finish that lingers on and on and on”.
