Speyside Distillery continues art focus with wildlife bottlings

Aug 9, 2017by Annie Hayes

Speyside Distillery has launched a series of limited edition whiskies that feature portraits of its local wildlife, called the Speyside Wildlife Collection.

Set in the foothills of the Cairngorm Mountains, the distillery has launched the range in support of the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts (PSTA), with which it has had a longstanding connection. The artwork was created by Joanna McDonough, PSTA graduate and Speyside Distillery’s artist in residence, and complements the original art displayed in the company’s new office, Gallery & Lounge, in Glasgow’s Art District. The range also includes a crystal cabinet, decanter and set of eight crystal glasses designed by Titchmarsh & Goodwin, craftsmen to the Royal family. Speaking at a launch event last week, Speyside Distillery CEO John McDonough said: "We are delighted to extend our support of the PSTA with the release of our limited edition Speyside Wildlife Collection. "The new collection emphasises the strong connection we have with the school and the wonderful and beautiful, natural environment in which we create our single malt whisky." Prices and more detail on the range are available on application.
