Glenfiddich is a beautiful distillery that's still family-owned. Brand Ambassador Mitch Bechard set me up with the tour and I learned so much about the brand. Although they produce on a large scale, they don't cut corners and have over 100 staff working there. So, I took an image of the distillery and input a lot of cross-linings to emphasize that there's a lot of detail put into a distillery that sometimes a consumer may overlook. Before going there, I assumed they just massed-produced on a large scale and cut corners, but they don't. It was good to see the attention of detail they put at the distillery--like using their own water source to bring it down to 43% or 40% abv before shipping the scotch to get it bottled in Glasgow. Apparently other companies that ship their scotch to a a bottling plant in Glasgow get their whiskies watered down there, and the water is different there. Glenfiddich wanted to use their own water, and it costs more to do it that way. Their scotches aren't in your face, but it's soft and subtle. It takes time to pay attention to those characteristics just like the distillery itself.

I work in the whisky industry and whisky is my passion -- from the actual spirit, to the people who make it to where it is made. After pursuing my dream of a 2-month, solo trip in Scotland, where I dedicated my time to visiting distilleries, I was inspired to draw them and share my art with other whisky lovers.

This is printed on cold press paper. This particular type of paper is thick and textured. It’s usually intended for watercolor pieces because the grooves in the paper hold pigment and water. However, I like the thickness and weight in the paper because I think it gives my prints a more “vintage” look. It costs more than thin, glossy pieces of paper, but I prefer it that way because the quality of cold press paper is better IMHO. I want my images to be meaningful and special like a limited edition whisky.

*Original piece is also for sale for $415. It's approximately 16 inches by 12 inches in Archival Heavyweight Drawing paper by Bee Paper Company. However, it's thinner than the Cold Press prints.
