This piece was made in honour of Yoichi Distillery. Working at a whisky bar, I'm always inspired by the bottles I get to see there. People come into the bar to learn about whisky, particularly with Japanese whiskies. I wanted to do a series of Japanese distilleries that focused on the close-shots of their buildings to convey that Japanese whiskies can be attainable.

I particularly love this distillery because they use traditional distillation techniques that are similar to pre-1980's Scottish distilleries. For example, they use direct-fire still methods, which creates more caramelization to the spirit. I wanted to focus on 3 main rooftops of the distillery to suggest that real-life situations seem to occur in sets of three, whether it's good or bad. That concept of mystery reminds me of traveling through distilleries in Scotland and people said that whisky was a balance of science and magic. The more I study whisky, the more questions are unexplained, and that's why it's fun for me.
