Aberlour has opened the world’s first outdoor whisky art gallery!
It’s a unique photography exhibition set in the heart of the Scottish countryside, capturing the individual elements that together result in one of Scotland’s most famous exports.
Coinciding with the opening of Scotland’s ‘Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival’ today (1st to the 5th May), this permanent exhibition is free-of-charge to all visitors features the world-first series of stunning super-macro images, unveiled earlier this year by Aberlour.
These images were shot by David Maitland, a world renowned, specialist super-macro photographer.
Super-macro photography allows the subject to be captured closer than ever before and the result in this case was an eye-catching portfolio of intricate images.
Among these striking visuals are those which delve inside a grain of barley, bring to life the hidden pattern of the oak sherry cask and showcase the kaleidoscopic patterns of the crystalline structure of the spirit itself.
Nikki Burgess, Global Brand Director for Aberlour, said: “David’s photos have brilliantly captured the coming together of the natural elements and the expert craftsmanship of our distillers, while also maintaining the enigma behind the award-winning taste of Aberlour.”
The outdoor whisky gallery can be found at the Aberlour Distillery in the heart of Scotland’s Speyside region, halfway between Inverness and Aberdeen.
