There’s a lot to love about whisky. The tradition, the heritage, the geography, the characters behind the labels, and anyone who loves a good dram knows that there’s much more to whisky than just alcohol and water. Fortunately, you’re about to be schooled in Scotch.
Celebrating and illuminating one of the world’s most iconic spirits through the eyes of internationally acclaimed and award-winning photographer Jon Purcell, The Art in Whisky provides a captivating and unique photographic interpretation of the fascinating world of whisky.
Taking readers on a visual journey that percolates through the entire crafting process – from grain to bottle to glass – The Art in Whisky explores the very best of both old and new world whisky. From Bushmills in Ireland to Bowmore in Scotland, and further afield to Kavalan and Nikka in Taiwan and Japan, aficionados will enjoy exclusive access to the world’s most famous and unexplored distilleries and discover the stories, true craftsmanship, and zeal of the artisans behind the enigmatic spirit.
Strictly limited to 1,000 hand-numbered copies worldwide, the 256-page book includes more than 350 timeless and inimitable photographs that capture the ‘art’ in creating whisky. The cooperation and excitement from each distillery allowed Purcell to explore places very few people ever see, and has revealed elements of the whisky journey that many never knew existed.
Showcased in a bespoke, handcrafted, black leather clamshell case with suede interior, The Art in Whisky is precisely printed onto the highest quality vellum uncoated paper, offering a suite of luxurious finishes. The unique binding technique allows every page to lay completely flat for an unfettered, incomparable viewing experience.
