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.

    We can frame your artwork in either a White or Black box frame.

    We will frame your print in our UK made White 'Polcore' picture frame. This clean and modern lightweight frame has a slightly grained 'mid sheen' finish. It has a 20mm wide edge and is 32mm deep, supplied with a quality 2mm clear perspex front (i.e. not glass) and protected by a 'peel off' film. A unique feature of this frame is the 18mm spacing between the perspex front and the print itself, which makes the artwork really pop and stand out! The frame is supplied 'ready to hang' (with a fixed hanger) and also with a 'strut back' (so will stand self supported on a shelf). FOR UK DELIVERIES ONLY.
