I recently received a request from an a previous client to provide 6 paintings of Scottish distilleries to adorn his "whisky room " where he has a magnificent collection of whiskies.
This was a perfect commission for myself as a whisky lover with a reasonable collection but also with a love of the product and the history of the industry and its fokelore.
Distilleries are basically factories but due to their reliance on sustainable water supplies, barley and malting facilities they are often located in the iconic scottish landscape but also the centre of villages and towns.
The paintings included here formed this commission ( except Bunnahabhain ) at the bottom of this page.
Strathisla Distillery, Speyside. One of Scotlands most photogenic distilleries now owned by Chivas
Lagavulin Distillery, Islay. Most Islay distilleries such as Lagavulin were accessed from the sea, hence the long pier and distinctive signage to guide ships to the relevant location.
Dalwhinnie Distillery, Highlands - Scotlands Highest Distillery accessed from the A9
Bowmore Distillery, Islay. Situated in the middle of Bowmore town on it's beautiful beach front.
Tormore Distillery, Speyside , a purpose built distillery also providing housing for it's workers
Fettercairn Distillery, Mearns, Angus. Scotlands second oldest licensed distillery once owned by the Gladstone family
Bunnahabhain Distillery, Islay looking towards the Paps of Jura
