Edinburgh Old Town Whisky

£ 20.00

Edinburgh Old Town Whisky is one half of a diptych by David Fleck. The partner to this print is Edinburgh New Town Gin.

Edinburgh’s history, architecture and economy are highly influenced by The Whisky Trade.     The Old Town famously retains its Medieval Layout and much of the Architecture of that era is still used and for its original purpose be it shop fronts, homes or public buildings.  The origins of Whisky production can be traced back to the same period, with the first written order from James IV going out in 1495.

Today, Edinburgh Old Town is home to a range of Whisky specialists, their shelves stacked with the finest Scottish Single Malts and most interesting Scottish Blends. There are regular tastings at various venues, bars and celebrations where you can sample different styles and taste the rich peat of Scotland’s countryside. The practice of distillation is treated with great respect within Scotland and is both a treasured tradition and a contemporary craft.

David Fleck has illustrated the famous Edinburgh Old Town skyline, whose architecture shares a history with the beginnings of Whisky production, and fittingly framed it inside a whisky bottle. A large proportion of Scotland’s whisky is exported, so perhaps this is a fitting souvenir of Edinburgh.

Created by David Fleck for the “Crag & Tale” exhibition, for which we encouraged illustrators to look at Edinburgh from a different perspective.
