Speyside Distillery launches ‘Wildlife Collection’ whiskies

10th August, 2017 by Natalie Wang

The Speyside Distillery has released a limited edition, single malt whisky collection, featuring a range of wildlife images, in support of the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts (PSTA).

The rare whisky bottles in the new collection feature portraits of the wildlife near the distillery in the Cairngorm Mountains, and compliment the original art which hangs in the company’s new office in Glasgow.

The artwork was created by Joanna McDonough, a PSTA graduate and the Speyside Distillery’s artist in residence.

The PSTA is a charity founded by the Prince of Wales in 2004, with which Speyside Distillery has a longstanding connection.

Officially launching the collection to selected guests 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”.

The distillery, operated by Speyside Distillers, has been committed to extending the ‘Art of Distilling’ into actual sponsorship of art charities through its support of the PSTA.

Speyside Distillery managing director Patricia Dillon added: “The launch of these rare whiskies featuring our artist in residence’s work and the opening of our new Spey gallery & lounge is in support of the PSTA, Scotch whisky and traditional arts and we are delighted to be in the Glasgow Art District.”
